We offer traditional dishes and exotic specialties prepared with the freshest ingredients using our unique and flavorful recipes.  A tour of the labels in our hot sauce collection is sure to leave you grinning, maybe even blushing.  Add an international mix of salsa, samba, nuevo latino, blues and funk and you have an upbeat, casual backdrop for your meal.  The Traverse City location boasts an indoor fireplace.

The Bar

We feature the largest and finest selection of tequila in the North. Our Margaritas are Michigan’s best; made from scratch with our own freshly squeezed sour mix.  We offer many fun variations on this popular libation. We also put our creativity to work on an assortment of mojitos and other specialty beverages. Local micro brews are featured on tap; wines are available by the glass or bottle.
