We recently had a group lunch with a dozen colleagues and Fransisco took very good care of us. The food was served hot and freshly prepared, and just as we ordered. Fast, friendly service, at a reasonable price, my favorite Church Hill lunch spot!

Love this little place. The owners Francisco and Joyce are super sweet people and the food is yummy! We have eaten here lots of times over the years. Haven't gotten a bad dish yet and we have tried lots of things.
