The food was good and cheap. Drinks were cheap, too, and the waitresses were attentive. All in all a great local place to hang out.

“The best local option”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

Around for so long and still going strong.
A great local kitchen, food comes out fast and drinks are always cold. Just a lot of mosquito's which makes your night out a work out of slapping yourself every second
