May give it a second try not sure.
This was our first time coming here. My husband and I both love grilled fish, and thought we'd try it. Even though he ended up having chicken instead.
I had the grilled Salmon & Swai cooked with seasoned olive oil along with fire roasted corn and kale tabbouleh. Which both fish were over-cooked and dry inside. I cook those fish ALL the time, and are delicious and moist when cooked correctly. The fire roasted corn was recommend by the cashier and was a great choice. I highly recommend the corn you won't be disappointed if you like corn.
My husband had the Chimichurri Chicken bowl. The chicken was moist and tender. He enjoyed everything about it except as he said "he hated the chimichurri sauce on top", I personally liked the sauce.
We had a side of parmesan green beans too. They were not any good and would not order again. They were over cooked and greasy too. Also my husband noticed they had a fishy taste. Which he figured was from the oil they were cooked in having had fish fried in it too.
Chimichurri Chick 3★★★'s
Would have been 5★'s if not for the sauce.
Salmon & Swai 2★★'s and that's because the corn and kale salad were good. If the fish was cooked correctly I would have gave 5+★s, but took 3★s off do to the fish.
0☆ Green Bean couldn't give a star, too greasy.
Atmosphere: was nice and clean.
Service: the order was taken and delivered. But we were not waited on. Not sure if it's because we were outside or not.
