    Not a fast lunch but certainly worth waiting for their fresh, flavorful food! Cool building too.

    Their food runs spicy. When they ask you how spicy you want your dish, don't be a show off or you will pay.

    If you like spicy this place is a real treat. But everything is on a 0 to 10 scale so there is plenty of good options for people who don't like spicy food.

    The Creole Chicken is terrific and "5" is the right amount of heat - at least for me.
