They have a great meat section. I am really a meat lover that is why this place having a great meat section is such a nice plus for me. I can have steak every time.
I can never say a bad thing about this place, because this place is filled with honest trustworthy employees. I lost my wallet here once and one of the employees returned it to me.
We give – We have had it with Watts Grocery. The food is good but they treat customers poorly. We were frequent brunchers there. They do not open untill 11 and if you are at the end of a long line, they may not seat you at an available table until they think the kitchen can catch up. If you dare to buy a latte down the block while you are waiting, they will make you throw it out. Unless you order condiments with your meal, you will find that a runner will deliver your food and run off. Then you may find yourself trying to track down a waiter on the floor before your eggs get cold. Some of the waiters are just plain rude. We have stooped to the point of bringing our own catsup and Texas Pete to the restaurant to try to make it work. It's too bad that a place with good food does not understand the importance of customer service.
Service & Wine – Apparently, there is a lot of customer goodwill about this place and it is very attractive. A few quibbles, though: service recently (Father's Day dinner at 6 p.m. with relatively few tables occupied) was distracted and disorganized. Wine prices are way out of line for this casual place -- how about some offerings under $30?
Food -- ok, above average, and fairly priced.
my favorite place in town – Watts is great. Really affordable but high quality food. I love the wine list too. There are lots of great options for good prices. I go pretty regularly and love the waitstaff. This is one of the few places i keep returning to. Great for lunch,brunch and dinner.
Great sunday brunch venue with a large selection though I usually go with the Watts breakfast. They have homemade sausage and always cook my eggs overeasy perfect. I have been for dinner before as well and had a great time.
