The ribs were charred, almost burnt and very dry. The pulled pork and chicken was good. I got a salad and the lettuce was crisp and fresh. I had heard good things about this place but we really weren't that impressed.

I had my usual TopiChop and it was delicious as always. I loved the upgraded delivery of the meal and real utensils. It has been awhile and I liked these updates. Good fast food!

Another enjoyable meal under the palm. The pork was nice and tender, yummy steamed rice with black bean and hot sauce. A good meal for a reasonable price.

Had their bowl with chicken, rice, beans and veggies...Excellent. Chicken spiced up just right. The prices are very reasonable. We will be going back to try out their other offerings.
