Had the hot pastrami sandwich. Nice crusty bread wish a nice bite of mustard. Served with a pickle. Had a cup of tomato basil soup and a slice of key lime pie. Awesome.

2nd time to visit - 2nd time to have their tamales - awesome. This place has a menu that covers the spectrum: burgers, pizza, salads, an array of chicken dishes, and tons of stuff I'm forgetting. Takes an 8 page newspaper to print it all, but I suspect they do it all well. Had the Carib-Jerk chicken with balsamic brussel... More

This is a place to have a drink. It is not a place to find fine food or average food. The service is only fair. Having said this, some people do like Cootie Brown's.

The portions served are adequate but the service is extremely slow and they were not busy when we lunched there. It took more than 30 minutes to get 2 sandwiches. Their curly fries are just home made potato chips. They're ok..nothing to rave about.

Funky, inviting, friendly, diverse menu, very tasty food with good portion sizes. Heated outside area makes for nice option to inside seating. Favorite is tamales and several of their pizzas.

Not much of a selection if you are not a Mexican food lover. The place does not say mexican food restaurant so when u go in that is what you mainly see on the menu. They do have pizza but it's not anything I would want on my pizza
