Kip’s is good but not outstanding. The chips & salsa are always in short supply and their serving sizes average. Most dishes do not come with the customary beans & rice.

We can't have dogs on our patio because we have an open air kitchen. You can tie your dog up on the sidewalk outside the patio if you like.

Yes, we have a lot of gluten free options. All of our tacos can be made on corn tortillas and we have many to chose from.
