Good food, but very overpriced. Owner Jimmy is a little rude. Ice cream is soft serve, and very good but also expensive! $3 a cone? No thanks!

The French Fries are amazing and so are the fresh bakery treats everyday (for example snores cookies😍😍) and the hot dogs are very good but my friend got the pizza and she had to dab off overflowing grease so that grossed me out a little.

I actually do like the italian beef with delicious roasted sweet peppers but I can't see how it's worth $3 more than a similar sandwich at Portillo's. It's very convenient and I eat... More

They also supply overpriced food at the Glencoe Beach... More

The daughter of the owner used foul language in front of a father young children. When I asked her to stop she told me it was her business and she couldbonwhatever she wanted in her own place. I was appalled. The food is just ok-- nothing special. I don't understand how people will do business with people who don't seem... More
