  • Love our favorite bartender Caroline!!
  • Boneless hot wings and a mudslide is the best combo ever ! Especially after a hard day of work. Definitely my new favorite spot for after work drinks.
  • Sit at the bar. Pretty much every bartender here is amazing! Great conversationalists, great service, and always good food!
  • Monty is the bomb!
  • Mauricio is the best waiter ever! Get the triple meltdown for dessert!
  • Lory is my very favorite waitress at this restaurant!!!
  • Make sure you grab Wali as your server! Great smile and great service!
  • Great food!
  • Free Wi-Fi, open late every night but Sunday, and being remodeled. Stop in and check it out....
  • Cheeseburger Quesadilla is delicious!!
  • Jodi at bar was incredible server and just amazing with my 11 year old daughter. Best service person I can remember this year!
  • $1 drink specials most months lately... come for the drinks, stay for the food!
  • The food is excellent wait staff friendly. Doesnt take long for your food no matter what you order. Go here every week or more. Great place. Sometimes noon hour can be packed. But still fast
  • The firecracker Shrimp. Pasta says is a new spicy dish. Bummed...not one ounce spicy....
  • The food is excellent there and the server did a excellent job at taking care of her customers.
  • The dining room is absolutely freezing whenever its not busy because of customers' body heat, and I brought home a takeout meal to find a blatantly obvious hair on my food. Not going back.
  • Ask for Israel, he is an awesome waiter and a great people person.
  • 2 for $20 queso blanco, three cheese chicken penne!
  • My favorite one!
  • Even more bummed that the cook didn't or couldn't follow what we thought were clear requests: no seasoning (and salt is a seasoning) on fries, and quesadilla with just cheese.
