What People are Saying

  • 5 star review  Food is on point! Had driven by this spot numerous times and finally stopped in. The vibe was great and food was spectacular. Rodney took the time to entertain our newborn so we could enjoy our meal. I will definitely come back and recommend it to anyone who is on the west coast!
