One of those local places that real locals know . It's very homey in a house with a collection of rooms . It also has a nice outside area under trees on a brick patio my fav is the shrimp wet burrito or upside down chicken pot pie

Be sure you know exactly where you're going. It's on Dixie Highway, but that's not the same road as US 1. It's actually 1 or 2 streets to the west of US 1. If you turn on Anderson street from US1, just north of the big car wash that looks like a river steamboat, you'll find it. The place is... More

My mom and I had heard about this place but not seen it when visiting St. Augustine. Today we had time to seek it out and we were happy we did! We decided to share the wet burrito when we saw how big it was at a neighboring table. Wow! So full of great favors! Very reasonable, as well.

This little restaurant in an old house off the beat and path in St. Augustine is a treasure! The food has such wonderful flavours! Everything is fresh and nicely presented. The staff is friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable about the food. I love the island bowl with the jerk chicken plus I add the avacado as well. Their pasta side has... More

Cool, quiet place with excellent food and staff. I had the Back 40 Burger (which was awesome), wife and son had the Island Jerk Chicken Bowl (which they both polished off) and my younger son had the Caesar Salad (said it was the best he's every had, no joke), so if an 11 year old makes a comment like that...

Wow! We have had some great meals here recently, (Palm Coast & St Augustine) but this place was the best, bar none. We split the jerk chicken nachos and they were amazing! Then my wife and I split the wet burrito and it was the single best burrito we both have ever had. I also ordered some fish tacos and... More

Four of us stopped in here during Bike Florida and absolutely loved it! We shared nachos for an appetizer and it was delicious. For lunch two of us had the Wet Burrito, which is HUGE and one of the best I ever had. Their jerk chicken has a great flavor and their sauce is very good. If you have a... More

There is not much more to say about this place other than YUM! I had the mesquite chicken avocado press with black beans and rice....Great flavor from the chicken, It seemed like there was an entire sliced avocado on the sandwich, which kept everything nice and juicy until the very end. The beans and rice had so much flavor to... More

This unassuming place is slightly off the regular tourist route but well worth a visit. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful and helped us understand the portion sizes and the specials. The veggie chilli Mac and chicken quesadilla were very good and the apple pie cheese cake is highly recommended.
