The problem they have is there are twice as many tables as the kitchen can adequately handle. We were seated relatively quickly and our order went in smoothly. When I looked up I saw there were probably 15 tickets waiting for the cook to work...More

I'd been here for an early cup of coffee in the past, but this was the first time I ordered food. I'd been craving a good breakfast burrito so had one that was filled with bacon, eggs, hash browns and cheese. This was a monster!...More
