This place is fantastic! They offer three kinds of beans! The rice is delicious. The food is yummy but if you're craving more flavor to add to it, go to their flavor bar! There's habanero sauce, hot sauce options, pico, green sauce, etc! Great place.

Everything on the menu is fantastic. Fresh, creative and delicious! I love the salad bowl with a side of the (spicy) pecan slaw mixed in. The owners are local and they're often there. Great atmosphere and great food!
