I had nachos. They were basically a stack of chips with a sprinkle of cheese on top, a few pieces of tomatoes and red onion.

Delicious food. Try the Melazana Rolls, delicious burgers, soups, and roasted Brussel Sprouts (ask for the honey Sriracha sauce). Good selection of beers. In summer - outside patio is great and dog-friendly.
