It was Cinco de Mayo and the chef had added some South of the Border specials that evening! A starter of pork tacos were beyond delicious, crunchy shells filled with savory pork , avocado and cilantro. The bartender made very good Margaritas. One of us...More

Service and food are outstanding and it's pretty easy to get in. The location and building are deceiving and I think that's why it is pretty easy to get a spot. I've only been twice but it was outstanding both times. Servings are plentiful and...More

Excellent dinner for our anniversary. The ginger calamari was delicious. My wife had the salmon, which she said was excellent. The crab cakes I had were probably the best I've had, just enough breading to hold them together, and not fried to death like many...More

I have lived in the area for over 10 years and only just tried this place. I unfortunately wasted more than a decade judging this book by its '90s-esque cover and man oh man is the joke on me! We went here last weekend for...More
