“Top Shelf Tacos”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

Not to mention the top shelf Margaritas as well! Very tasty tacos with fresh local ingredients. The Farmhouse has done it again with another great restaurant providing consistent good service along with great food. We will definitely return!
The only drawback is the limited seating....it is an old diner seating about 40 people. If you go at peak hours you may have to wait for a while.

“Friendly welcome, great food, fun atmosphere”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

We arrived at around 10pm- family of four with boys aged 18 and 12- bit tired after a long day and wanting something casual and relatively quick to eat. The restaurant was full and we were told that the wait would be around half an hour, but this was no problem since we ordered a drink and munched on tortilla chips with various dips at the bar area. We were soon seated and enjoyed a variety of tacos. Food was great (although we are no experts on Mexican food) and the staff were genuinely very friendly and helpful. Be aware that the tables don't take more than 4 people.
