The garage origins of this popular spot are not readily apparent in this barn of an eatery with large windows and classy open-beamed ceiling. It is casual, but in an upscale way, and full of locals from seniors to young families chowing down indoors or on the inviting patio out back. The menu includes Cajun scrambled eggs, goat cheese salad and grilled vegetable quesadillas. Word has it that some local celebrities have been spotted here, too, but the off chance of seeing Sean Penn is not the reason to make the trek here. It is the food served up with down-home friendliness and great efficiency.
Had a terrible experience yesterday with the OWNER, I couldn't believe she was the owner! First I came in with a 1 hour lunch, they said the wait would be 20minutes so I decided to order to-go. I ordered quesadillas since I am gluten intolerant & pregnant (sensitive to certain foods) I got corn tortillas with cheese 3 of them. She explained they usually make them with three layers I said just two not three tortillas would be fine. She didn't warn me the cost was $6 EACH! When I asked her why it was $20 for 3 small quesadillas and guacamole. She showed me the childs menu and said thats the cheapest way for her to charge the food. I explained I had been here before and that I was not charged this amount. She seemed to just want a fight, her first solution was for me not to take the food, Not an option with limited lunch time and a small amount of foods that I craved. She showed me the quesadilla on the childs menu I pointed out that they were 3 layered and came with an extra side, she seemed to get flushed then said do you want three sides. I said no just take a few dollars of each one she said she absolutely could not that her cost in food and labor was barely covered. I explained AGAIN I have come multiple times before and was never charged this much. I finally realized she wasn't listening and was on a power trip, I told her I had my own bus. in the area and would NEVER treat a client this way that she had been so rude and crude that I would never be back. It blows my mind in this economy that someone would chase away a customer because of a bad day... Also the last few times I went I experienced bad service Long waits to take orders and long waits for food 20-30 mins to order and another 20 to get food. Don't waste your time I will never ever go back.
