What an amazing spot this is!! The décor is really unique. The service is beyond fantastic….but you will want to go because of the food. Over the top flavor and choices. The pulled pork egg rolls… WOW truly amazing! You really, really have to make this a must in your plans or travel. Go and enjoy a fabulous evening of food and drinks. Well worth a visit because once you try it you will be hooked. If I could give 10 stars I would. LOVE this place.
