Incredible food in the most unlikely spot. I ate lunch with my wife. We did have to wait in line but everyone does. This place has amazing food and the eclectic ambiance fits the bill. I know in a French restaurant eating an Italian sandwich...More

This is great food. Get there early or be prepared to stand in line. It is quaint and you may end up eating with strangers but leave with new friends!!

I had heard about this place for years and finally went. It was well worth the wait— and most days, you will wait. Go early before the noon rush because there will be a line out the door!

You can't make reservations. But, they do accommodate large groups, if you call ahead and tell them how many are planned. I've been to a couple Meetups there where they made accommodations.
