Off our beaten path, this is a classy and busy little restaurant. Food and service were both good, and it was within walking distance to our Red Roof hotel.

Service was fast and friendly. Guacamole was awesome and made table side. Main course was ok. Nothing to rave about.

Yes, in the form of grilled meats and veggies - they have steak, grilled chicken and grilled shrimp (I have tried the chicken and shrimp - quite good!) in salads as well as standalone platters.
