This place can be easy to miss because it is in a strip mall with some vacant storefronts. Another thing to note is that though it's not (yet) posted on the door, the restaurant is closed on Mondays. Aside from that, this place was awesome....More

We went there after a long day out with our family. We had to wait about an hour before Jiallo (owner, waiter, cashier, busboy, etc.) finally came over. I told him my kids were terribly hungry. He proceeded to ask my 5yr if he wanted...More
