This place doesn't take reservation, unless you have a group of 6+. So you are never sure how long your wait could be. We were early, but still waited about 20 minutes before seating.

But the wait is worth it. The food here is quite good. Served family style, most dishes are quite large, and price is reasonable. And because it's family style, dishes come out one at a time.

We had cobb salad, which wasn't huge, but was tasty. The ribs were wonderful and fall off the bone. The pork chop was thick and juicy. And the dessert was excellent too.

Overall, a great meal, but wish we could make reservations.

There is good reason for there to be such demand and such a long wait. So, if you don't mind waiting an hour or so, put your name down on the list, grab a cup of coffee, go shopping up the street, have a pre-breakfast cocktail at EAT, and then enjoy a mighty fine breakfast. It really is quite good.

This gem is in a small neighborhood, modern minimalist decor, comfortable seating, quick attentive
Staff, menu diverse and interesting, food cooked to perfection, outstanding signature drinks, heavenly desserts very well priced. The only negative is a bit loud. All worth it!!

We came here and sat at the bar that faces the street. It was great to have some fresh air, hot coffee, and a nice cocktail! i had the Cast Iron Frittata and my friend had the moroccan chicken hash. Both were more like lunch meals but really really good. Some of the menu items are the same as at Toro Bravo (a favorite place of mine) but most are unique to Tasty n Sons. There are a few more things on this menu that I am going to try next time!
