THE FOOD

Our menu is simple and delicious classic American street food. A few of our items have some influence of Latin and Korean flavors but to us, that is part of Bay Area and California food culture. We love bold flavors, good spices, and fresh herbs. We use the freshest ingredients to serve some tasty Burgers, Fried Chicken, Grilled Fish, Chicken Wings, Salads, Garlic Fries, Elotes & more. Wash it down with one of our rotating local tap beers, a glass of wine or one of our house-made lemonades!

We also make a bunch of sauces from scratch.
