Super fresh at a great price because they have free tea, lemonade, & water to go with your meal. Pay $2 to bring your own beer or wine. Mostly outdoor seating with a fun vibe. CASH ONLY!

Yes! Several times we've decided to eat at home and called in our order. Everything was prepared as requested. Just remember that this is a CASH ONLY establishment. Well worth the trip to an ATM if needed.
