I was looking for "a new place" to go for soft dinner with wife and kids, and after reading all of the opinions here, we decide to have our own experience with the restaurant.

Great food and quiet atmosphere. Both times we were there we had the place virtually to ourselves. The owner, Joseph (or Jose), was sympathetic to our wish for non-smoking, and the only smoker was in the bar, not the restaurant. Closes at 8 pm.

I have heard a lot of positives about this place so I decided to go and have some food there. Nachos were excellent and all the meals we had with our group were also very good that all together with some ice cold beers. The owners are also very friendly!!!
