We ordered and the food took over half an hour for the first three dishes to come out. Ten minutes later, 2 more dishes came out and still we waited even more for the final 2 dishes to... More

I was half an hour waiting, and was never attended. The servers would pass by look at me, and keep going. The restaurant wasn't even full.

Went to celebrate a family member's birthday (party of 15). Food was average. Service was horrendous. Food was served ridiculously late (over two hour wait) on a very slow Sunday. Waiter never brought napkins, drinks, or utensils. Had to go fetch them at the bar. They allow people to smoke right by the No Smoking sign (obviously illegal). Went to... More

Good scramble eggs with sauted potatoes and great french toasts. Also, just for curiosity I had to taste a dessert called cream cheese dumplings they were awsome. The waitress was always attentive. Nice atmosphere.

The place is big, nice atmosphere and accessible with reasonable prices. However, service should be improved in order for customers to return.

Hamburgers are good although they are not 100% beef. But flavor is good and food is prepared when ordered. It is not a fast food. Drinks are good, not watered down. They have live music sometimes. Not sure the days. No A/C. Open spaces is the rule.

Big place nice for events. Smoking area included. Great prices in drinks (Happy Hour from 2pm to 9 pm) Finger food was abundant, chorizos, fried cheese, chicken bits. Do not ask for the fried pork(Carne frita) almost burned, tough. The service is excellent, good for groups.

Thank Rauledgardo
