The fish and chips here was so fresh! The fish was so meaty and succulent! I ordered my fries with Baja and Cheese and they were just AWESOME. Prices were good and the service was speedy.

We had a great meal here but be prepared to wait. We did not know that the junior combo is the same as a kids' so we paid about $3 more for the same item. The Baja sauce is great!More
