Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent food and service! Our party loved the freshly squeezed mango and strawberry sugar-free shakes - these are not even on the menu, but they offered to make them for us when we inquired about juice or shake availability. Our food was delicious and plentiful. Very affordable prices and friendly atmosphere!
