Have always enjoyed the meals, good prices and hearty portions. Service was mediocre but what you expect for a chain like this.

The "Lunch Trio" is only $10 and gives you a half-wrap, a small salad, and a small bowl of chili or soup.The chili was tasty, the salad was fine, the wrap was disappointing.

Slowest meal service I ever encountered. Alcohol was a big priority. I had a club sandwich on waffle; it tasted like sugar, I couldn't even taste the bacon. We found the food mediocre, service slow, prices uninviting and atmosphere uninspiring on a Tuesday evening.
