Our group was looking for dinner when we stumbled upon this little gem. The engaging proprietor sold us on the place, and we weren't disappointed. The decor consists of amazing handcrafted woodwork by the owner, from the massive tree trunk tables to the whimsically carved...More

We got the ribs, which have been smoked, poached then finished on the grill. Food was served quickly and was delicious. Also did nice cocktails. Friends has the fish steaks which were also excellent. Great service with a friendly attitude. Highly recommended.

We stopped in, or tried to, on a Friday night and the neighbor said they've been closed for months. I hope they open up again, I was excited to try this place out.

Great food, good serving sizes. Homemade piña (pineapple) juice. Priced really well. Worth a visit whether your local or from out of town. Good crew running the show too - a group of fun Mexicans from Vera Cruz....
