A friend at work told me this was a great place for takeout. I ordered two chicken dinners for three people and it was enough food for two days. Great food and large portions for your money. I love those little potatoes that they serve.

Came across this restaurant by chance, it has a small dining area but busy. The chicken was cooked to perfection and very tasty. It's a Portuguese style type of preparation and presentation .
