One of a kind menu-don't miss it!

A unique and wonderful full-service restaurant. The hog-jowl tacos are NOT to be missed! There sweet /savory contrast is amazing. The service is personal and many menu items are not found anywhere else, making this a MUST on your list of Provo eateries.

The food was all very good, but we had a table of people next to us that were so loud we couldn't carry on a conversation. The wait staff did nothing about it even though the problem was obvious. Owner / wait staff need to be sensitive to the needs of all diners. Despite the good food, don't plan to... More

Stopped by this restaurant on the way to the airport. We arrived just before it opened for lunch and were seated promptly. Within ten minutes the place was half full and by the time our meals had arrived people were queuing out the door. The service was excellent and the food well presented, not a piled up plateful. There were... More

My husband and I had dinner here for the first time a few weeks ago. We were told when we arrived that there was about a 30 minute wait. Usually, 20 minutes is my max, but we weren't starving and it was a nice evening so we decided to wait. While waiting, we observed the staff working and the meals... More

Navajo taco is all that needs to be said. I got it with the pork and 3 weeks later I am still craving this place. The service was fantastic too. The waiter we had was very personable. The drinks are strong and unfortunately that meant I couldn't finish mine because I had to drive.

I have been there several times and have never been disappointed. They don't have a huge menu. Sometimes there is a wait, but that is a good sign. I have liked the salads and hamburgers. I would give this restaurant a try.

I'm not even sure where to begin. Read the reviews which were great. Called in advance to check on outdoor seating and confirm they are dog friendly. Received the affirmative. Arrived at 745p and sever/greeter, not sure which she was, advised one of two tables out front just paid and would be available for us. Fast forward to 826p and... More

We were in Orem and this restaurant was recommended when we asked about local places to eat. We were not disappointed. Although they were crowded we were seated quickly. Our order was taken and the food was excellent. The crowd seemed to be all college age kids, having a great time. The price was right, and we were able to... More

I'm a big fan of pozole, and this did not disappoint. It has a unique smokey flavor that was tasty. They recommended the hog jowl tacos, which were exceptional. Ended with a crème brûlée, which had a hint of heat... amazing. Look forward to returning.

Our service was poor. We were left waiting at the door with no one speaking to us. There were plenty of empty tables. Finally seated service slow. Food was unusual and very good. It is a bit pricey but we won't be going back
