Taco night was good and cheap. Good service too. It feels like your parent's basement, complete with pool table. Three tacos for $7, must be sleeping the same meat. Smoked pork had lots of meat - I could only eat two.

Cozy atmosphere, fast and polite service. We went mid-week and sat down without a wait. We both enjoyed our meals and coffee. If you normally expect 2 pieces of toast with breakfast be aware you are only served one at this restaurant.

Unfortunately we do not have heaters on the patio. If the sun is out it is usually warm enough to eat outside by about 9.
