The restaurant itself is pretty small and seats are limited, so there’s usually a few people waiting outside in line starting around 6-6:30pm for dinner. They don’t take reservations and accept cash only, so plan accordingly! Fortunately there’s an ATM at everyone’s favorite drunken frat hangout, Ace Bar, right across the street.
