The Flying Rhino always has consistently good food. I highly recommend the fish tacos and black bean burger. Don't forget to try their broccoli slaw! They also have a great kids menu; each kid can order an entree, drink and dessert for one price. The restaurant can get busy on Fri/Sat nights so be prepared to wait or make sure... More

We went to the Flying Rhino before a family member's play at Clark University. This restaurant comes highly regarded by the Phantom Gourmet -- and it's easy to see why! We started off with the Hummus plate -- we got the small version, which was a cup -- and it was more than enough. It came with nice chunks of... More

Busy, loud atmosphere. Food and service average. Large bar off the dining area. Parking lot small so be prepared to park on street and walk. Valet available.

Sorry this is almost a year late. My daughter and I were on our way home from a soccer tournament and found this gem of a cafe. So happy we made the slight detour to stop in. No wait for us on a Sunday afternoon. You're going to love the eclectic decor. And tuck your napkin under your chin because... More

Made a reservation for 2 at 7:00 on a Saturday night. Arrived a few minutes late and waited over a half hour (!) to be seated. Drinks and apps were served quickly. We had teriyaki beef which was delicious! Kale salad was pretty good. Entree however was terrible. I had the parmesan and herb encrusted chicken. The crust was badly... More

This is a fun place. I have been here with my kids and with just my wife. Great for both situations. The food is always great and they have some fun and different options on the menu without being completely out there. The atmosphere is also nice, good music and a great staff. Worth a visit.
