The portions here are more than generous!Consider sharing or order something that can be reheated! Everything I've ever had was yummy. This is a popular restaurant, so go at an off time or prepare to wait!

If you have a group and ask in advanced the staff has set up tables and chairs for me. This past Friday morning I request a table for 12 at 8:00 am and they took care of me.
