We got this reccomendation by a guy in the corner, since its kinda hidden. Once there, the staff was extremely kind and professional. He reccomended several entrees and everything was just delightful. Would definitely come back.

The food here was great! They even were so kind as to prepare dishes gluten free for us because of an allergy. The different drinks we ordered were also all delicious. Would definitely come back here for the tacos and ceviche!
