Open Wed.-Sat. 11am - 8pm

We make our entire menu from scratch, every day, and our food depends on lots of fresh, locally-sourced components, which may be hard to find sometimes. When we start to run low on food, we "put out the hat" and the last person in line wears our ceremonial sombrero. If you are in line behind the hat, you might need to try us another day!

What's New?
