Had dinner there a few weeks ago. Average food and service. Not a bad place for family dinner. Would not consider a special place.

Same good food, but prices are higher. One person, no alcohol and my bill was $21.19, with automatic 18% gratuity. Got charged $4.00 for open food? Is that chips? Maybe our group needs to find somewhere else to eat.

Have eaten there three times, the food tastes great, but including just a few days ago I ended up with severe cases of Montezuma's Revenge twice.
