I haven't eaten here in quite a while. The service is very attentive, food very good. Had the burrito bowl which was enough food for three meals. I don't understand why this place isn't busy. I will be returning for sure!

Had dinner there last night. Food great as always, service a little slow but we were last customers in and out. So service slow probably due to the end of a long day.
