The owners themselves are usually and are very positive folks. The food is great, always fresh and tasty. You certainly get your money's worth.

We tried this restaurant based on published reviews, but were very disappointed. Contrary to expectations, it was extremely average -- in terms of decor, service, and food. Not a terrible or an unpleasant experience, but one that we will not use our time or money...More
