The best service in town, small family run and you can tell! The portion sizes are massive and the Chilli is the best I've ever had! Have been many times and will go again!

The menu is small but large enough to have a good variety. Service was very friendly, food was great. They have a bunch of hot sauces tucked away in the drinks fridge.
