Good food and spirits, as well as a comfortable atmosphere and pleasant waitstaff! Besides the fact that we enjoyed the RIalto Bangin' Shrimp, as well Chicken and Waffles...what man wouldn't like sitting there surrounded by large flat screen TV's at every angle and tons of sports coverage?!?! We'll be back guys!

I went there on my birthday and it was a great experience. The food was excellent. The waitress was very sweet. I had a great experience and would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves soul food as much as I do
