It took kus "forever" to decide to walk in the door, because we could not figure out what type of place it was. We were not even sure it was a restaurant. One day, after going to the bank that used to be next door,...More

Only can speak to the Pizza and meatball sandwiches as we did carry out but it was great! Needed gluten free for our daughter and she wasn't disappointed. Meatball sandwich was top shelf. Really great with sautéed onions and peppers.

Incredibly over decorated in "cluttered Mexican/60's retro collector" style with comfort food menu that has something for everyone. We enjoy their pizza and salads. Great friendly staff. Fun. Also have take out.

We thought we were walking into a Chinese restaurant by the name?!! Our misconceptions stopped at the door. Go to peruse and "experience" the eclectic décor and then stay for the fare! Their menu is extensive, with a separate full bar, so something for everyone!...More
