Firstly, don't be discouraged by a line of hungry patrons, if there's one that leads out the door - it moves quickly! There's a line because there's no menu (just sample items on display) and you both order and pay before you're seated. The food...More

I'm not sure if they are open on the 24th or not. I don't think they take reservations it's very informal.
