Food was ok. Not for me, but I’m not big on super greasy food. Kids enjoyed it though. They played good music and it was a friendly atmosphere. It wasn’t some place I’d go back to though.

I agree with ordering it from their website. Our waitress told us locally you can find it at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, but our California stores don't carry them. We also loved the green chili sauce!
