We enjoyed this small neighborhood restaurant! Had the cioppino special and the chicken salad. Lunch portions were just right. Waitress was top-notch and friendly.

Staff were engaging, food was great, and it is a local gem. The menu comprises of traditional American and Mexican cuisine. I had the chilaquiles and they were good. Would have been great but the egg was overcooked.

This place has excellent food! I have paid twice as much at restaurants that aren't as good! My only grumble would be that they don't take reservations. The menu is varied, the coleslaw is unique and delilcious, and the Red Wine Sangria is incredible. Also...More
