Great food, great service. CBC is one of those hidden gems. Check it out. Try the roasted chicken salad, the nervous pig sandwich, or the tacos. You won't be dissatisfied.

My margarita pizza was the most flavorless, greasy thing I have ever eaten. The service was slow and the restaurant featured lots of people in a crowded area. Very dark inside, too. The only good thing was the asparagus fries which were amazing.

The friendly team service concept is great. The noisy bustle of a busy neighborhood place is great. The adult beverage selection is great- to include Session beers for a less alcohol taste experience. The food on a Friday night at 7:00 came so quickly we...More
