What People are Saying
“A Great Find”
“I ate there for the first time last night. The food was great and did not have to wait really long. …people need to realize this is not fast food and the food is cooked to order. The staff were friendly and helpful. There were so many choices so I am looking forward to trying out other items on the menu on my next visit . I had the stuffed baked potato. Our table ordered the beef kabobs and they were excellent also..*had to sneak a sample”
“Fabulous food & flawless service”
“Place has amazing food. My wife ordered the Philly Baker, I ordered the Philly sub with fries and my son had the chicken fingers. Food was hot and fresh. Took about 10 min to get my order which seemed super fast considering they were extremely busy. My son raved about the chicken fingers being the best ever. Facility was bright and clean. Will be one of our weekly spots.”
“Another successful experience”
