The people there are great and service was top notch. The food however was lacking. Not much flavour. My husband and I had breakfast and both my Heuvos Rancheros and his eggs Benedict had little flavour.

We ate here on 2 occasions and it is good food at a good price. The atmosphere was fun and warm. I had the Mexican plate, the HUGE daiquiris were amazing and the price was soooo good.

The restaurant was empty when we arrived. By the time we left they had a line out the door. We had a good experience here. The staff was stretched thin and worked very hard to keep everyone moving. I don’t give the restaurant 5 stars...More
