We went for a Sunday brunch and arrived just as the restaurant opened. Our server was very sweet and attentive. If she didn't know the answer to our questions on the menu (I am gluten-free), she asked the cook. I ended up having tacos and...More

Best Taquitos I’ve had. Worst tortilla chips I can recall. Pleasant outside seating and staff. Cramped parking, even with valet.
