Terrific

I had the Cajun Mahi Mahi tacos and they were fantastic. My wife had the wet burrito, which was the size of a new born baby. Also, very good. My daughter thad the upside down chicken pot pie. It was flaky and delicious, more than enough for 2 people to eat. The staff was very attentive and nice... read more

Just went here an hour ago with my girlfriend. Heard about it through trip advisor. Pulling up it is in a neighborhood area, inside is decorated hip and homely with local art on the walls. Casual style you can sit where you would like. The service is nice but not over the top. The menu has a few vegetarian options... More

We recently ate at the Back 40 Urban Cafe on a Saturday night. Granted they were busy and we did have to wait for a table. They seated us at a table that they had just cleared from the previous guests but despite my request, it was never wiped off. We waited more than 10 minutes for someone to acknowledge... More

Went there twice now, the first time the food was tastier and seemed fresher. The second time, we did takeout, which should have been just as good but my shrip tacos were only OK, only a few shrimp in each taco. My wife's cuban sandwich was not good, tasted a little off. So, the jury is out however, I am... More

I took my mother here after I tried it out a few weeks before. I had the Chicken Curry Wrap, and so did my mother, who does not eat spicy food. We asked out server if my mother could taste the dressing. She supplied more than just a taste!. She also suggested that since my mother didn't eat spicy food... More

Love the food. The vegetarian chili bowl was excellent. Too much to eat in one sitting. My grand daughter had the vegetarian burrito, the biggest burrito we had ever seen. Menu has all kinds of choices for every taste.

Seemed like a lot of locals go there. Saw it was in the top five on trip advisor so I took our visiting family over there. Pricing was was very good, food was better, and the server was better than that. I think I found a good spot to come back to ever time we visit. Just a heads up,... More

We had a late dinner here so wanted something light. Multiple salads sounded really good. Both of us chose the thai salad and were really happy. Very tasty and good size.

We came here because of all the great reviews I saw on TripAdvisor. It was a little off the beaten path. A house that has been turned into a restaurant. There is a variety of different foods, and everyone loved their dishes! The Sante Fe chicken salad is delicious, and the Wet Burrito is so huge that two of my... More
