We stopped here while passing through Spartanburg and enjoyed the Cuban sandwich. Food was good. Thought it was odd to eat indoors on outdoor furniture, but it was no big deal. Nice people.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. There are so many great items on the menu, both lean meats (perfectly seasoned) and vegetables which give the diner so many different combinations of exquisite taste, depending on individual appetite and sense of adventure. I have yet...More
