King's Chef Restaurant was highly recommended by some locals. A couple of us went and we were both blown away by the food. The Pancho Via Burrito consisted of marinated beef, peppers and oddly enough very crispy fired french fires, cheese and green chili sauce...More

We ordered "The Grump" - shared it for 2 people and still had food left over. It was tasty, certainly unhealthy, and definitely satisfying.
