Attentive and very friendly service. Meatloaf was delicious and had a unique flavor. Tacos and burritos were thoughtfully prepared and tasty. Modest and diverse selection of cold beer. One of the best meals we had in Carlsbad!

Delicious scratch kitchen fare at reasonable prices. Outside, inside and back room dining areas. Great location right downtown. Will definitely visit again when in the area!

So sorry we missed this. I saw it a while ago, but it was a few days after Christmas anyway. But, in case you are still curious, we were not open.

We do serve wine based alcohol cocktails. Though they are a bit lower in alcohol content, many people feel they can't tell the difference.
