Grits and tuna and the conch burger are my favorites thus far. One of the few places on New Providence that's open late night downtown.

Have been coming here for years! Great local style food (fried or baked chicken, rice n peas... chicken in da bag) - it's where local people go. The coleslaw is great (homemade) and the chicken Caesar salad is surprisingly good.

You cant' beat their chicken curry or club sandwich, especially for the price. Everything elesr we've had there was good also. The late night eclectic clinetel and ordering through a repo car lot window add to the ambience..

Affordable local food that's done right. A short walk from the cruise terminal for a cheap alternative to sampling real Bahamian food. Although a dine in area is available I believe most orders are made to go which makes it convenient if you are on...More

Don't be deceived by the exterior of this place. It's local food made very well. Staff are a little grumpy but it adds to the charm of the place. I really like it. There's always a wait for the food but I would much prefer...More
