    Great lunch spot after visiting some Napa wineries! They have great stuffed peppers, rabbit tostada, and the campfire pie (so make sure you save room for dessert!)

    Nice setting for a midday stop from the wine tasting mayhem. The duck burger is intriguing but remains better in idea that execution.

    For a great appetizer, try the five spice pork belly on steamed buns. They're packed with flavor and you get just enough to satiate any cravings without filling you up before your main entree.

    Thought the entrees (steak, meatloaf) were just ok. Pretty good pork tacos. Best was the campfire pie for dessert... get it if you want a massive yummy Oreo S'more (Google for Cindy's recipe)!

    Hard to order the burger with so much good stuff on the menu, but they do a great job. If you want something a little different, get the Chinatown Duck Burger with housemade shiitake mushroom ketchup.
