Nice place with a very homey feel, however food took extremely long to arrive, I was almost ready to call the manager as it took far too long, about 45 minutes to arrive. The service was somewhat sloppy, only one waitress working who obviously didn't really know what she was doing as she mixed up orders. The food was decent, but not worth the 45 minute wait.

Sloooow service - at times we were wondering if they were actually doing something. Don't go here if you're in a hurry. Food is decent, though.

I had a bun-less pulled beef. Tasted very sweet but good. Somehow they also removed all my sides as well as the bun, so I had to ask for it specifically. Got it in the end. The creamy homeslaw was good.

The borrito tomatillo was good, according to... more
