For around 11 CAD you get a good meal. Well worth the money! The pork is like pulled pork, which is really tasty.

I was excited to go here based on the review, but I was a huge disappointment. The food looks great but it is tasteless and small! Do not waste your money here, go somewhere else and get your money's worth.

Stopped through on my way to the Art Gallery, based on reviews, and was not disappointed. Although there is a bit of a line-up (as the burritos and quesadillas are grilled before serving) it was definitely worth the wait! Loved the chicken burrito! Also worth...More
