In an alley is true. Not easy to find but the food was worth the trouble. Excellent food. Fair price and good service. We had the Mediterranean salad and chili. Their three fork chili was excellent. The thing that grossed us out was the cook with disgusting, greasy, gross, unclean dreadlocks preparing our food. What ever happened to hair nets? I am sure this problem exists in a lot of places but this was the first time we had to watch a guy like this prepare our meal. It took a lot out of the experience. However, the cook probably fit in well with the eclectic crowd that this place is intended to draw. We will not return because of the kitchen help.

My wife went on 10/1/13. The waitress was very good and keep everything going. Their reubens are very good. They use great corned beef. It was very good and and fries were nice and hot. We will be back!

If you are looking for something other than a food chain restaurant this is your place. Someone said the cheese slaw is awesome...I will have to try that the next time I visit.

Fork in the alley is a great place within walking distance of the Cambria which serves delicious food and drinks in a very casual atmosphere. They have a small, cozy patio to enjoy outside dining.

Pizzas are average, and for a place with a wood fired oven I would expect more. Service is good, but if they are full you will wait far too long for your food.
