Everything I have had on their menu is good. I really enjoyed the Salmon this time and their fries with many different dips!

I ordered the choose your own salad ingredients option, with arugula, mixed greens, avocado, grass fed Tri-tip steak, cucumbers, purple onion, and green goddess dressing. The greens were supremely fresh, the steak cooked perfectly medium rare (as I ordered it). They did not skimp on the meat portion, it was so generous, I took half home in a doggy bag.... More

We enjoy eating outside at this restaurant. Salads and soups are fresh, and there are plenty of sandwiches to choose from. Ordering at the window is easy with very pleasant and friendly customer service. I wasn't crazy about the fries, but everything else was to my liking. Prices are reasonable.

We were looking for a place to eat that was GF after our time at Legoland. This place was a good find. Kid friendly! The kids enjoyed the sodas.

I don't get the hype about this place. Got a cuban sandwich from here..completely dry and flavorless. If you are going to do a cuban...do it right!

Ate here with a large group and everyone loved everything they ate. Every item was fresh, perfectly cooked and well prepared. The recipes and combinations they use are all excellent. Even though you order at a counter, the staff is still very friendly, helpful and makes sure you are taken care of. Overall, the quality of the food is higher... More
