I love this place. Chef Dennis adds a southern punch to just about everything on the menu, and his pulled pork is simply the best. Try the pineapple fish tacos, and check out the gourmet pizzas he sells out the back door. Simply wonderful.

This is a small local restaurant with fabulous food. My favorite is the Tri Tip. It is delicious. They have splits of Korbel champagne so you can always get a nice glass of bubbles. They also have an extensive beer and wine selection.

I had a BLT(avocado) and it was delicious, as were the excellent French fries, but I'd seriously recommend a BURGER! They looked AWESOME and I believe they're made from fresh ground local beef!

Don't get put off by the restaurant's non-descript look located in a strip retail plaza. The tapas style food is varied and delicious in every bite. Wine selection is limited in variety but good in offering. A must visit for casual and friendly evening.

Recently, we stopped by for lunch on a Sunday to eat lunch. We have eaten here numerous times before and have never been disappointed. Both my husband and I purchased fish tacos - his original and mine grilled mahi-mahi. Dennis works very hard to prepare...More
