White gazpacho was like drinking cream out of the carton. The Mediterranean plate looked large, but only had 4 falafel balls. The lamb meatballs were good, but tasted the same as an average meatball. A bit pricey, but really good location.

We loved Inicio. The food is fantastic. We tried many specialties. We loved the homemade hummus, Gazpacho, The french fries are yummy with the spicy sauce. We also enjoyed the shrimp dish, a Burger, and the Lamb Chops. We would recommend this restaurant.
