  • Anna Taylor

    It's okay, not great or the best but edible.
  • Shelley Cernel

    FYI they kick you off the sidewalk in front of their building if you are holding outside food or drink. Evidently they expect you to walk in the street.

    Great service! Fish Tacos were awesome! But, it smelled like a bodily fluid when I walked in. Maybe it was just that night?
