It was a great experience with just a couple minor flaws. Service was excelent! Our servers and the owner/manager were great people. Food was good but a little cold and I was really bummed that their most famous plate was not available (Fried Chicken). Their wine flights were delicious and the Mexican beer great as well. Price was a bit steep for the amount of food you get, but not too bad. More
