John (.John (aka “PHATFoodFan”): Their tacos might be 2x the price of a Taco Bell equivalent, but 10x the flavor! 😋 No need to run for the border for a taco, but run to this place to get a table since there isn't a lot of seating.

John (.John (aka “PHATFoodFan”): If you can’t decide between the fancy beignet or simple one, get both! Otherwise get the fancy beignet with raspberry filling. It’s almost 3x the price of the simple one but worth the splurge. 😋
