I didn't really care for the area it was in, but it was within walking distance of where we stayed. The food was excellent, and the locals were VERY friendly. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't let that scare you off....More

At first, this place seems like a neighborhood watering hole, which it did have that comfortable environment to it but, the food was very good and the wait staff friendly and gave great service.
