An oasis among fast food and chain restaurants. Visiting from CA, I was quite impressed with the menu and the meal cannot get more authentic. Owner is a lovely woman who prides herself on making sure her customers enjoy themselves.

Came here for dinner on a Friday night. Only a few tables at a time but the service was on the slower side. However the food was great and would definitely come back if in the area again.
