Food is outstanding. in a bit of a sketchy neighborhood but we've never had a problem. a hole in the wall but excellent food, good service, and a fun, raucous atmosphere.

The biggest problem is wanting to order everything on the menu. I always eat lunch here. The ingredients are always fresh and the daily specials are to die for.

They're food is amazing and always consistent. They just have to watch their language especially when there are kids in the restaurant. Great food just need to keep the swearing to a minimum. Highly recommend trying their food tho. The pulled bbq pork is a favorite for us.
