I'll be honest I can't really remember what I ate. I can, however, say it was good. The atmosphere was great and the staff is very welcoming and the service was on point. If i'm in the area, I'll visit again.

Great Service, great Margarita's and the Queso dip is to die for! Sister bar is right around the corner for follow on drinks too.

If you're passing through Montgomery, take a five minute detour off the interstate and check out this place. It's located near Huntington College (my alma mater) and is almost obscure. We were seated immediately and knew from the decor that we were in for a...More

During a recent weekend away to Montgomery, my husband and I checked out this spot because we were in search of some fresh, local, vegetarian friendly options. It did not disappoint! Great cocktails, delicious food, and super friendly service in a funky/fun atmosphere. Don't miss...More
