Bushfire has been on my list of places to visit for awhile. I ordered the spinach strawberry salad and the half chicken. The food came out quickly, was moist and delicious. This is a great fast casual restaurant that is affordable.

Unique dining experience, with semi-cafeteria style ordering. Try-tip, curry chicken, braised short ribs and more are offered with choice of rice, roasted vegetables or roasted sweet potatoes. Deserts are large and filling, and there are a variety of salads from which to choose. Very tasty!...More
