It's a little garishly lit for some folks' taste, but that seems to keep out some of the seedier clientele found at some of the other "your name here" Hots (Mark's, Gitsis', etc.), and the menu is a bit more extensive.

The counter staff are fun, friendly, and forgiving of inexperienced diners (I still remember getting yelled at at Nick Tahou's years ago for not knowing if I wanted "hot sauce" or not!) — they do tend to "pounce" on customers, even ones who are pretty clearly "still looking", but they're patient.

The menu has the obligatory "synonym for Garbage Plate(tm)", with the usual meats & sides, perhaps a notch tastier than most others, and my favorite hot sauce yet (mild & meaty, no cinnamon). There are also a wide variety of wraps, specialty burgers and sandwiches, chicken-based food, appetizers & side orders, even salads. The Fish Fry & Sandwich on Fridays are pretty good, and no pricier than most.

Drinks are Pepsi products (no Diet Mountain Dew, though) on draft, plus bottled water. —TracyLogan

When we complained the owner (the one that drives a black Lexus) got mad at us and swore at us. We have been customers from the day they opened but after this we will never go back and I don’t recommend this place to anyone. —WarrenSeeley
