We decided to check out after asking several locals what their favorite soda was. We really enjoyed our visit. We went across the street to get a couple of beers. The staff was friend and the service was good. We both enjoyed our meals. Very laid back way to spend the evening.

We had a nice, reasonable dinner here. I had a steak & onions and my boyfriend had a chicken dish. The food was okay. The service was outstanding - very friendly and we got to try some new things.

Good service, local food and prices. Good lunch spot. Enjoyed the plate lunch and gallo de pescado. Hit during a busy holiday but service was still good.

The food is very good- but not exceptional- its like most of the Sodas in the area. They do have a larger seating area which is nice for families. They don't serve beer, but you can buy one 2 blocks away and BOB. Fresh juices were very nice as well. Don't get me wrong- I thoroughly enjoyed it, and would stop there again in a second - I just don't like giving out 5 stars for food unless its totally unique or exceptional.

We stopped in here for breakfast on a time crunch. Service was really fast and the food was cooked very well. Their prices are also very reasonable.
