Sushi Chef Allan Brambila operated out of El Barco for eight years before opening at his own location in 2017.
If you’ve driven past this place on the highway and never stopped in, you don’t know what you’re missing. Sushi fans will be delighted to find a wide variety of delicious sushi; anyone who is not a fan will find plenty to choose from among the tempura, rice bowls, teriyaki and other dishes, such as the teppanyaki.
