“OK, nothing special”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

Stopped in for a Sunday lunch and if you like lots of noise, tons of twenty-somethings gathered around pitchers of beer and five TVs on five different channels, so-so food, then this is your place!

Unfortunately, it was not for us. I had the chicken tostada, and it was OK, but nothing special or that I'd recommend. Pretty light on the lettuce (ironically, the cheapest ingredient!) and the two teensy plastic thimbles of salsa left me wanting for more.

My wife went with their special Asian Salad, and again, pretty blah. The dressing, on the side in a good move, was tasteless.

Iced tea was fine.

But we had were sitting right across from each other and were almost shouting to communicate. Must be the Sunday lunch crowd from Cal Poly hanging out. We arrived and the large party at the next table were finishing their food, and they were all still there when we left.

Servers were pleasant, prices ok, but value was low. We won't be back.
