Now under a new name. Pastorina's is great. The food was delicious, staff were lovely, and they have a secret garden out the back. Highly recommend Pastorina's.

This place has the best Fried Chicken! It has changed hands but the food is still excellent & very reasonably priced

This was the best fried chicken we have ever eaten -- and we are from the southern U.S. We went on a Saturday at lunch. There were a few orders ahead of us so we waited 30 mins for white meat (dark was faster). It...More
