Stopped here for a quick lunch. Food was great, service was fast. I had a bbq chicken salad. Great iced tea. They feature tables both inside and outside. Great drink menu and lots of options. When in Pasadena, I will be sure to come back.

Beside the food and great costumer care, Inclusion is a great key in a successful community. Congratulation management for yesterday's performance. Arcoiris LA Mariachi was a wonderful experience. I will be back soon with more Friends. Michael Dergar Señior Contributor food critic
