as usual, we got fast and friendly service on our latest visit. Food was good too, but they did run out of a couple items (of course, one of our favorites). It's a great place for good service and a kitschy dining room

This place is delicious! My picky non-vegan son was able to order a plain cheese pizza but even he liked the dumplings and empanadas. The portion sizes are so generous, we always had leftovers. My husbands dish might have been the best, the blackened mahi...More
