We ordered the chilli and rice with cheese and a prawn chilli and each one came as a five dollar meal combo which also gave us a drink. tasted great, was well cooked and definitely worth a visit.

Quick, convenient and easy for a to go order. Food is fresh and salsa is very fresh. Chicken just falls off the bone.

Southlanders are jaded about this chain. Tourists are not. This type of chicken is especially hard to find in the east. Thus, it's a treat for us.
