Been here many times and they never disappoint. This is well know by the locals and no matter what you get you will like it. Great service to go along with the food.

Great place for people watching. The waitress was good, the staff was friendly. Most of my food was really good, but some of the sides were bland. I would definitely give them another chance though.

My office is nearby and I've been here tons of times. It's always really good. It's usually busy but I've never had to wait to be seated for lunch. This is a dog friendly restaurant which is very Savannah, if you bring your dog they will give him/her a huge beef rib bone if you want. If you are really... More

This place has awesome food as well as great service. They recently brought back several old items to the menu. So glad they did. This place is in downtown Savannah and has indoor and outdoor seating. Try their top shelf Margarita. It's great. The red sangria is also very good. Very casual atmosphere. You can't go wrong with this place.

We went hungry and thirsty, but the servers were busy checking their email or texts on their phones. Finally was able to place order. I got the BBQ plate, looking forward to some good, smoked BBQ. It showed up with BBQ sauce covered on top, but the "chef" plated the meat and put the whole thing under a heat lamp,... More

We had difficulty finding a place open on Sunday afternoon and kind of stumbled across this place. It was chilly but sitting next to a heater was comfortable. What a fun selection of tacos! We had a variety and all were good. My husband enjoyed the nachos with brisket. I had the sweet potato salad - very original and tasty.... More

This is a great casual place to settle into and have some great variety of tacos with a good selection of quality beers. Nice atmosphere to just sit back, enjoy food, drink, and friends.

So, this is one of our favorite places for a quick meal and great atmosphere. Recently expanded, it is a great neighborhood place to hang out. The honey habanero margarita is one of the BEST I've ever had. The food (love the chili lime chicky taco) is very good (and very reasonable) when they are on their A game. Our... More

The appetizers are creative and flavorful! Can we take a moment for the pork stuffed poblano! Same can be said in regards to their tacos... creativity and delish. The service was great and they brought water and chips for our dog. Order the Bloody Mary; it is worth it😉

We were travelling from Florida to Charlotte, NC and took a 15 minute detour from I-95 to try this place out because it was dog friendly. There was plenty of outdoor seating (which our dog loved!) and we were warmly greeted and quickly seated. Service was top notch - very attentive and went the extra mile (provided to go cups... More
