We relied on Trip Advisor to first hit Cuz's Fish Shack and then Sahara's for a plate of great food. The lamb wasn't in for the week, but the chicken platter hit the spot. Nice sides and quick and friendly service. Great little spot.

A little gem. The food was fantastic and the staff were great. The man with the moustache, who I presume was the owner or manager was very friendly and attentive. Highly recommended!
