“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

We eat the Latin side of the menu and it was incredible. The tacos and lasagna had so much flavor. My only complaint is that on trip advisor prices are noted to be between 7 and 16$. I didn't see a meal cheaper than $13 and that adds up for lunch for 4.

“Small, crowded and wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

A nice ethnic mix brought together by a passionate chef. Everything we've had here has been good.

If you don't know what you want start with the tacos. They're a great introduction to Chef Tony's cooking. You can choose a region or a particular meat and let the chef do the rest.

You go here for the food. It's crowded and it's not a place for a leisurely meal, but you're not going to find better dishes of this type anywhere in northern Michigan.

Hi Joe! Glad you enjoyed our cuisine! We know our space is a little cramped, but to start off, we are really enjoying it! It brings our guests and our staff closer together (figuratively and literally) and allows for guests to interact and get to know each other.

Right now we are just blessed by the business we have. Thanks so much for your support!

“Perfect lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

This new restaurant is a great find. Tony the chef asked us personally what we liked and we ran with his choice. I had a very good pork dish with Bajan spice, perfect! I highly recommend you visit soon, it's only small so will get popular. A great find.

“A must visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Stopped at simply cupcakes today on my eating day. Every week I pick a different restaurant to try in the Traverse area and surrounding cities. Maggie sent me to Georgina's for the Asian BBQ Pork. The food is great here as well as the friendly people. Anthony the owner and cook, Lori the waitress were very warm and informative. This is a must stop and eat restaurant. Open from 10:30 until 9, 7 days a week. Small, but in the summer they will be adding outside eating.
