This is a very popular spot, especially on a Sat. evening. Parking is an issue but our relatives were able to get there ahead of us and get in line for a table. Food is great!!

Just take J street to downtown. Time of day can matter of how long it takes 5 pm may take a little longer. Parking can be more difficult on weekends but we have always found parking. Just give yourself time.
