Don't be surprised by the Styrofoam and plastic, nor the island-time service. It's the price one must pay for the spice fix.

    I like the Wings and Rice and the tea is on point.

  • Amanda H. on 02/09/10

    This restaurant closed about a year ago

  • Zandra E. on 08/27/11

    Ox-Tails are amazing and seriously, just order the house sauce by the bucket loads.
