Had lunch here on 2nd visit. This time walked right in & got seated. Shorty after a small line. Very good food, good portions, OK prices. (Now you know why there are lines!)

Seating was a poor as people who came after us (we were on list ahead of them) were seated before us. Food when ordered was delivered quickly but was either great or burned.

The restaurant was recommended by a local. Our waitress was fantastic and made some excellent recommendations. My husband had the pork Pom Pom Pom. I had a vegetarian dish (something verde on bottom right of menu). Neither of us had had food like this before....More
