In the beginning it was bearable but these past few years have been tiresome. Aside from a rare few, the staff really would rather be somewhere else. You usually have to wait to give your... More

Chicken (especially breast meat are crispy, moist and delicious. Shrimp is spicy and crunchy. Red beans and rice are the best in New Jersey
