Great food. The staff is very funny and incredible nice. The price is a bit above the average for lunch time, but very good quality-price ratio. Great experience

Average lunch, a bit on the expensive side for Faro. Delicious freshly squeezed OJ. Decor rater simple, hall way between a "Cantina" and a classy restaurant. Staff very friendly.
