Incredibly friendly and helpful staff, fresh food and good portions. They have an awesome deck in the back where you can sit to eat and relax. AC inside. If you're lucky, Steven the peacock might even stop by! Definitely recommend.

The food was okay, the service, particularly by the boorish brute manager was terrible. Fuel up if you really need to but don't waste your time and money going in to the joint.
