Great atmosphere. If you don't get there early you will wait, and wait. But, that is a good sign overall. You will enjoy your food. Their popularity has affected their prices though, much higher pricing than when they started.

Server was very slow to come to the table and it was like she had to struggle to be nice. After a long wait for our food we were brought out food that was visually unappealing , looked... More
