Great fresh food in a place with a great vibe

Great food, great service, lotsof options, and easy to have food made just as you want it. It is like the old Burger King, "have it your way" but the the food is way better as is the ambiance.

Salad combinations with meat, steak, shrimp and fish. Soups and lots of creative sandwiches. I tried a salmon sandwich, and while everything in it was tasty, I thought the bread was too thick and overwhelmed the rest of the ingredients...no problem, it was great as an open faced sandwich. Entree plates are also available. Pork, salmon, tri-tip, ahi...to name a... More

For once you can go out and have an healthy option for lunch or diner, we selected to visit for lunch and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and service overall. The kitchen needs to increase quality control as to ensure the customers do not have wilted lettuce in any salad, in this case it was... More

Great healthy sandwiches. There were so many choices that it was hard to decide. this restaurant is one that you stand in line and order, then they bring you your food. They also have beer and wine. Be aware that you cannot bring wine outside and must consume it inside. This does limit seating options.
