We ordered food to go. We got chicken quesadillas and a chicken burrito. They were a decent size but expected a side of pics or something with the quesadilla. It was $10 and the burrito which is a decent size is $13. Chips are extra.

In my opinion,the only redeeming factor at this establishment is the selection of craft brewed beer...which you will need to calm your nerves while you wait - and wait - and wait - for your order. I've never experienced a more haphazard and frustrating time...More

The seitan burrito was a first for me, and to-die-for delicious! Reasonable prices and take out if you want to carry-out for a picnic, or to feed a big group.
