“Good food, good prices, funky ambiance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2012

Come here to eat, not to be fawned over. The service can be ambivalent, but the food is great and the atmosphere is relaxed. The portions are very generous in relation to the price.

There are limited restaurants in the area.but this is a gem!I always order some burrito,My husband orders whatever..The atmosphere is funky...eclectic.....The drinks are yummy.......It just seems to gather an interesting variety of people.......I just always find comfort in eating there.........It's not a fast-paced restaurant but spend the time looking aorund and order a drink:)

“Unimpressed in many ways”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2012 via mobile

We went here to eat based on the recommendation of a friend. Our expectations were high, however, we were disappointed on several levels. First, our waitress was not friendly at all. Perhaps one has to be a regular to be greeted in a friendly manner. Our entree came by itself, no bread, nor salad. Although we ordered different dishes, they were very similar, and they were not very tasty. We do not plan to return.

For us, the way we are greeted at a restaurant is an important part of the experience. In most places, we are warmly greeted, so it was not a good way to start our meal here.
