    Review: Huuuuge burritos made exactly how you want them. I had the Chubby with steak, chorizo, cilantro, rice, black beans, queso, onions, and hot salsa. The chips and queso were delish and the horchata was legit. Highly recommend this place. My wife and I spent about $35 and couldn’t finish everything.

    Review: Today I had a delicious Indian meal with my good friend, Lan C. It was so hard to choose what to start with, everything smelled amazing. I filled my plate twice – It’s so nice to have a buffet of items to choose from including chicken curry, butter chicken, salad, dessert, & more. I finished with the Kheer-Rice pudding made with cardamom and would highly recommend everything I had. It’s a great atmosphere with traditional Indian Music including 5 star fine dining service. Thanks to everyone for a great experience, highly recommend this for 1-2 people or for large groups.

    Review: It was really busy there today but the hostess let me sit outside and grab a table while I was waiting for the kitchen to catch up. Sydney did a great job and came by to hook me up with a really great salad and a new beer collaboration IPA. The salad with chicken was outstanding and I really liked the dressing. The beer was great and I’m so excited for the warm weather and being able to sit outside here. Thanks for a great meal.
