This was our first time eating here and while the food was good, we felt rushed. We had a reservation. Our server was nice but she was already asking the table if they are ready for dessert when I was still eating my dinner! I wasn't even finished yet....she had cleared their plates off the table while I was still eating. I found it to be very rude.

We keep going back because food is amazing. Service has always been outstanding with friendly staff. If getting the soup , which is delicious, ask that it be served hot.

Loved the fajitas, simple menu, ambiance was amazing, and having a trumpet playing the birthday song for our birthday girl's celebration was the cherry on top of a great meal!

We visited the North Raleigh location after a long hike at the nature preserve. We used to frequent the Durham location frequently and were so sad when they closed. The food was so good and the decor was fun and fabulous! We were seated immediately and our waitress was so sweet. Definitely will
Be making the drive again to come back!
