Definitely go for the tacos, they are sooo good !! If you are hungry, they have also big sandwiches filled with meat, which you will struggle to eat, and their nachos game is on point too! Dont look elsewhere and eat here!

I don't know but I've been there a few times, even during some of the downtown fairs and such, and never have trouble. It's always just me and my hubs tho - not sure about their policy for larger parties.
