The atmosphere is very casual but the food is anything but. You will be treated to unusual flavor combination of real chef quality. Limited daily menu means they focus on making every selection the best.

After a long day of wading through the Virgin River narrows, this meal hit the spot. Spaghetti squash enchiladas were a unique menu item that drew us in and didn't disappoint. The salads and entrees were fresh and tasty. Atmosphere was interesting as it is located in an old gas station/garage. Eclectic decor and metal chairs and tables both inside... More

I'm sure the food is good but the service was poor. There was one server waiting all the tables and as we were trying to get a table he rudely told us to wait and he would get to us. Waited 20 minutes in the shop connected to the restaurant where there was a boy working the counter playing on... More

Great appetizers and cold beer. Outside seating and great service. Mexican food. Average prices. This place is small so I would recommend getting there early to avoid a wait. I would guess only can accommodate 100 -125 people, if that.

We were fortunate to be able to sit outside next to the gas heater as it was turning chilly. We had the goats cheese starter which was good. Then the ribs which came with a salad. I think the ribs needed beans or something else with them as we found them sweet. The service was good but sometimes overbearing ,I... More

We had lunch at this fun outdoor eatery. The menu has a little bit of Mexican, BBQ, and just plain good flair with interesting combinations of spunky flavors. Quite tasty with a fun, playful atmosphere.

This restaurant is on a former gas station site. The food is excellent and the service is friendly and prompt. We aren't fond of eating al fresco and the chairs were hard metal, with no view to speak of, but if you don't mind eating outdoors you'll enjoy this place.

This place uses the property of an old service station. The tables are outside and there are heaters around to keep the chill away. The food selection is pretty broad and the food itself is prepared very well. It did seem that the kitchen was able to prepare food a table at a time, which is fine and meant all... More
