Quaint little eatery on the main drag. Food is excellent and highly attended by visitors and locals. We arrived and found the service prompt, it's a order and pickup to your table.

No. Teo doesn't take reservations. It is a walk in only place where you stand in line to get the amazing food. In fact Teo works best when busy when everyone orders and then looks for a seat. Nothing makes me more cranky... More
