Great service, fairly good food. Lunch special for $5 (plus a drink). Modest portions. Simple. I would return. Local firemen were eating here, too.

The baked sweet potato tasted odd...can't explain it any further than that. Never refilled our glasses. I suppose it was a manager at the register with the... More

The food options, quality and decor has slipped mightly since this establishment decided to abandon the Sonny's franchise. The food does not have the same consistency but the staff is still good.
