From Christopher B.

"The most amazing food! Such a special and unique treat for Northern California. Reasonable prices, charming atmosphere, the tastiest cornbread ever, and best of all...the owners make EVERY customer feel special and at home! I live in New Orleans and this rivals and beats many Cajun/Creole restaurants here in the city. It was one of my favorite places and most special memories during my trip to Northern California."
