Busy restaurant with nice ambience and very good service at lunchtime. Both guys had sandwiches that were packed with meat. Another friend and I had tacos which were very, very petite. Good but short on quantity. If I went again I’d have a sandwich.

Tonight did not live up to its usual reliability. Off night perhaps? Very slow service mid week when the restaurant was less than half full. 1st courses did come out all together....a plus. But, it took forever to get them, as well as the entrees....More
