Living on the East coast, this was a completely new concept for me, but FUN! There are pictures on the walls to help you figure out what everything is and the plates are color-coded for pricing. Not everything looked the freshest (sometimes you don't know how long something has been going around), but for the most part it was very good and an inexpensive way to try something you may never have tried. There is also a menu for "special orders" which we also did. Overall we loved this concept and would definitely go back.
