A first look at the menu said, "Ooh, only for the adventurous" but don;t let the words get in the way. I had a delicious pork sandwich with pickled onions and a great sauce that filled me up with quality, not just quantity. This is...More

Yes! You can sit outdoors.. technically... it's like a large outdoor covered canopy walkway... that sounds confusing but it fresh air but covered from sun..
