Always look forward to the opportunity to check out a different entree from their menu. Had 'Huevos Rancheros' this week. Excellent!

Joined my cousins and some friends for lunch on a rare rainy day so sitting outside wasn’t an option but food did not disappoint. My squash quesadilla was good but I’m going for that luscious looking grilled cheese next time!

Ideal for lunch. Sit outside if you're able. Everything I've tried is good, but my favorite is the stuffed avocado with chicken salad. Highly recommend.

The music is usually from 5:00-7:00 pm and is held on the patio of the restaurant. For this specific date and concert, it is best that you google the restaurant and see if it is listed on their website.
