Came in to the Hampton inn late on a Sunday, three choices for dinner delivery. The other two were low rated, this was not. Decided to order and it was really good. Only problem was they only take cash. Food was great.

We stumbled upon this fantastic restaurant in a thriving diverse neighborhood. We never had Portugese before. What a treat! And look how much food and drink we got for $36! The restaurant is very modern though in a neighborhood of simple houses. The staff was...More

Had dinner on a quiet Friday night. The place is usually busier. The reception and seating was unorganized to say the least. We ordered a bottle of their house wine which was satisfying along with appetizers. The shrimp and sausage was the beginning of the...More
