“Beautiful restaurant (like a cafe) - but staff not quite as great as ambience.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

We were in Norwalk for a soccer game and decided to grab some lunch on our way. I don't typically rate fast food restaurants, but we've eaten at a lot of Taco John's restaurants and this one was gorgeous! Added bonus, it was attached to a frozen yogurt (Cherry Berry) restaurant...separate review. This appeared to be a new facility and was modern, trendy and had more of a coffee shop feel. There was a combination of regular tables, booth and tall tables near the window with free Wi-Fi. Everything was decorated beautifully. The food was good and hot as well. The only downside was the individual working the counter. She appeared to be less than excited to be there, and didn't smile or appear to enjoy anything about the job. She wasn't rude, but did the absolute minimum to take and fulfill the order. This individual is the only thing keeping this from an "excellent" rating.
