After visiting their Montgomery location I was very reticent to try this restaurant again, let alone another location. Glad we decided to. Of all days, we went on Valentine's Day. Perhaps not the most romantic of locations for such a location, but this location is far more roomy and accommodating than the location on Montgomery. In addition the staff were friendly, efficient and made that extra step to make us feel welcome. We even got some chocolate covered strawberries and a box of chocolates!!!! And for whatever reason the food even tasted better than what I remembered from the last time I visited one of their locations. So while I do not think I will ever go back to the location on Montgomery, this location has won themselves at least another return visit hopefully sometime soon!!!

I grew up in Southern California and the food is just like I remember. Great food and great staff. I am a frequent flyer at both locations.

The meals are very big so definitely ideal for a midday meal.
The food is delicious and flavorful and the service was awesome.
