I wasn't a fan of the food. My sandwich was way too greasy and not that flavorful. The main reason I'm giving this place 1 star though is because both my friend and I got food poisoning here. We hadn't eaten together in over a...More

Cubano sandwich, Ropa Viejo & Grilled Cheese with crispy bacon all got thumbs up. One bowl of chicken soup with fresh avocado also highly rated. Eclectic decor makes this a worthwhile lunch spot. Daily specials looked interesting - next time!
