    If you get the sangria pitcher, they'll make it in front of you and tell you exactly how to make it at home! It's so good.

    At $12, their Cubano is a tad pricey for a sandwich, but it's a big one (I couldn't finish mine in one sitting).

    Even though this isn't a high class restaurant, it wants to give you the feel of one. So there is a "waiter" guy in the men's bathroom who washes your hand, gives you a towel and candy.

    If you order the Sugarcane Lime Chicken Salad, get the dressing on the side. The lettuce tastes almost carmelized otherwise.

    The Sangria is amazing. It's quite expensive, but definitely worth it if you're looking for an awesome drink. They even make it right in front of you.

    It was nice place with a mixed crowd. They are one of the few places that have a live band. The service was good. The food was subpar. The sangria was awesome they make it right in front of you.
