Very tiny restaurant located on East side of The Square. Usually have to wait, but food is great! Cash only I think.

Great food! Sometimes have to wait for a bit but it's worth it! Food is what I would call tex-mex. They make the best pulled pork around. They do have salads also😀

This restaurant is really small, only takes cash, and usually has a wait, but is 100% worth it. They have amazing burgers and barbecue. Whenever we go to Monroe, we do not dare go anywhere else. I always crave this place, and it's a shame...More

This is as small restaurant that packs people in. It has a small bar and you usually have to wait for a table. You can leave your number and they will call when a table opens up.The food is unbelievable. It's a place where other restaurant owners go to eat.
