Our server was so sweet & attentive. Definitely helped get our mind off of Mayo for a while. Fast, friendly service but food was also very good. Great daily drink specials. El Cubano sandwich is yummy!

We were here as part of a group for a birthday party. The snacks were good and one waitress did a good job of keeping up with the drink orders. Very busy place.
