“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

If you don't want to spend a lot and want some good home cooking this place is great! They don't really understand English but who cares the food is amazing! It's a dive but it's banging!

“Delicious food. Long lines. Very casual environment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

I'd heard good things about this place so thought I'd give it a try. I showed up for a "late" lunch but still waited in line for at least 20 minutes. Very tasty food, but between the difficult parking and the lines, I'd only rate this as average. Perhaps it would be good for take-out or catering. Note: They don't take AMEX.

“YUM! A flavorfest!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Based on TripAdvisor's reviews, I decided to try Sardi's for their chicken and rice. I got the quarter chicken (white meat) with Peruvian rice and a house salad. For $8, this was an excellent meal! The chicken was extremely moist and the seasonings were quite flavorful. The rice was quite tasty and I mixed in some of the sauces they provide with the meal to add a little flavor. The place was busy late on a Sunday night but as others have said, the line moves very quickly since (I think) it's a cash-only business. It's a former Pizza Hut, so atmosphere is not spectacular, but you won't be disappointed if you go for the food. Yum!

“Simple pleasures”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Food was very good and very reasonable. Atmosphere livelyl. Serving primitive, with plastic plate bending under the weight and plastic cutlery that couldn't handle 1/4 chicken or steak. Bring your own.

“Good grilled chicken”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

This is a very causal dining. You might want to order to go because the atmosphere is not appealing. It can get really crowded at any time. You might want to go during the week because there is nothing special about this place.In addition, it can get really loud around there.
