    The waitress with thick eyeliner is super rude. She forced me to pay 20% tip, which she doesnt deserve at all. Cash only. Not enough seats. You can find better places in EV. OVERRATED.

    Horrible service at this location. Quick meal and was asked to move to another seat multiple times. Food is average, heavy on oils. Skip this place unless your in a bind
