I travel the eastern US for work, and this is my favorite restaurant. Hands down, best salmon I’ve ever eaten. My husband devoured his steak and chorizo, AND finished my salmon. I go out of my way to visit this place any time I’m nearby.

We enjoyed our lunch here, and the food selection is great. We had the chicken platters with rice, beans and I had the Tripe soup of the day. Nice presentation, large portions, fair prices. Service is quick and professional. A very enjoyable meal.

The food is excellent. Service is good. But the place is very small. You have to sit sp close to everyone its a bit uncomfortable. We order take out regularly because of the sitting situation, just not a great space to sit down and eat.
