Food is really good and fresh. I recommend the huevos chorizo and the queso. Rice and beans also very good. Staff was friendly and super fast. Definitely would stop again!

We are spoiled on the Eastern Shore with this gem. Every time I go to another restaurant I compare and there is no comparison. Also have the best Margarita's. I go there a lot with friends and family lunch and dinner. Always good!
