“Good food, awful odor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

My family and I went here and the fish tacos were delicious! Although when we first walked in there was a really bad fiah odor, I would have left if my family would have let me but I'm glad we stayed, like I said the fish tacos were good. The staff was very friendly and talked us into getting the fish tacos. Overall it was good, just get rid of the gosh smell and you get 5 stars!

Seriously, the absolute BEST fish Tacos on the planet. Owner Mike is a hands on friendly owner operator that knows how to run a successful business. Amazing food, fairly priced, beautiful, clean and efficient little cafe. You cant go wrong with this place, seriously. GREAT fries too! Hey Mike, have you considered sweet potato fries? Just sayin!

“Just Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Guess I should have had fish tacos. I ordered fish and chips. They were just okay. They were dry and didn't have a good batter. A friend had fish tacos and said they were wonderful. I would give this restaurant another try, and have the fish tacos. I wouldn't ever order fish and chips here again. We sat outside and the service was good.

Best Fish Tacos I have ever eaten. Small restaurant that has inside and outside dining. They even have a Zagart's rating! Great Staff and very clean restaurant.
