Everything is fried and greasy, the crowd was not good, did not feel 100% safe, will not go back! Did not like it, not much selection, felt like it was super low budget service and food.

This is definitely an off the main drag, hole in the wall place. Mostly locals. But don't cheat yourself out of a really good, cheap meal because of that. The burgers are huge and tasty. This time I had fried chicken, string beans and fries....More
