Awesome tri tip sandwich. Onion rings were great too. Large portions and the favor was good. We brought are dog and sat outside. The line moves fast. We will definitely be going back.

Always good, lunch or dinner. Amazing quality of beef, so tender. Line can be long, but worth it. Treat yourself!

I don't think they take reservations at all. I have been there 3 times and always a line but well worth the wait!
