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!

We eat here often as it is conveniently located to shopping and right off HWY 17 so it's quick and easy to get in and out. Service is friendly, fast and attentive. The lunch prices are about what you pay at a fast food restaurant....More
