So friendly and quaint! Had my reservations when first walked in, but was pleasantly surprised! Food was amazing! If you go in a group of 6 or more get the large platter, you will not be disappointed. Side note: You can bring your own libations.

Here's a little spot in an electic part of town that feels very real. The people there are sweet and the real deal. Not a high end dining experience, a great way to eat and share food, if you like to do that, with friends...More
