A sign on the door alerts you that new management is not honoring the full value of Local Flavor vouchers, only what you paid for the voucher. Poor choice on a new business that appears to be doing quite nicely. Busy early dinner crowd with...More

Been here a couple times now and honestly some of the best and well made quesadilla's I've ever had. Service was great, margarita's also did the job that night. Just nice to get something so simple, but yet executed so well. Kudo's to the chef.

Ordered takeout for a group of 6. Order was wrong, we were missing a meal and person with gluten allergy was given the incorrect order. Not good at all. Owner seemed to care less about errors and execution of food. Never again.
