Accidental find and intentional love. Great place, great food, great people. A little dark inside even after eyes adjusted. If we ever go back through Arlington, this place is a MUST

The chicken is flavorful, tender and juicy. All the sides unlimited! You can even take leftovers home and they are just as delicious the next day. Highly recommended!
