Very nice food, fish burrito and fried rice are my favorite. Highly recommend. The service is OK, and the music there is also a plus.

One of my very favorite places to eat. I have had almost everything on the menu and have loved it all. The decor alone is worth a trip but the food will keep you coming back.

We eat here whenever we get the chance! Fun atmosphere and outstanding food! Our favorite is the fish taco! Be aware that this location only accepts cash or checks, and it's BYOB (for a small fee). They have another location on the East side of town that, to us, is even better!

The fish tacos were pretty good but the beef in the Cuban sandwich was very tough. There's no alcohol sold but you can bring your own. The outside patio is dog friendly.

Met some friends there and was not disappointed. Get your menu off the hanging line to the left while walking towards the bar where you order. You get to take a pitcher of tea/water to your table and help yourself vs having to wait for someone to notice you need something. The food that I got was delicious but it... More

They have some of the best food here. It may not look like much but it's a fantastic restaurant. Be sure to get there a little earlier though as it does tend to get incredibly crowded very quickly

Tasty fresh food. Served quickly and very reasonably priced. Quite eclectic and obviously popular amongst the locals. Most customers seem to have been here before.

If you're into eclectic, this place is for you! Kind of a "hole in the wall" look and feel. Sanitary grade was a "B". We parked in a stall of a closed down "do-it-yourself" car wash next door. No AC and after we ordered, waited twenty minutes for our food. But well worth it! I had a steak burrito, my... More

Great place to go and line moves fast. Love the food here and the fried plantains are great. Nice place when you don't want to dress up. Parking is a bit of a mess at times but worth it. Bring your own is available for those that imbibe! Great fun for kids as well.
