I've taken down a few after work drinks here before, but had never tried any of the food. That changed on a Thursday evening, with the UF students on break. That is an important detail considering that there was a 30-40 minute wait for a...More

Always try to come here when I am in Gainesville. Fun atmosphere, great outdoor eating space. Not as many fish options for the tacos as in years past.

This is a classic Gainesville experience. Most of the menu item's can be customized with a variety of protein including vegetarian and vegan options. I highly recommend the weekly specials, including the drink specials. They are always creative and use local in season ingredients.
