Awesome food-place needs a makeover

The owners are sitting like a fat rat, not investing capital into the building, the area has really 'come up' so this place needs to do the same. The food is awesome and the prices are awesome, so I guess they are trying to keep cost down by not remodeling.

The concept of the restaurant was fun. All the food was good except for the "steaks". We had the New York Strip Steaks on December 5, 2015. They were chewy and grisly and awful. We will never eat steaks there again.

the food wasn't bad, but not the greatest, you shout out your order when you hear "next" ... it was ok, but will not go back.

This is a small hole in the wall restaurant with the absolute best steak and other food. Call ahead and get carry out because there are very few seats. Don't miss this gem!

Our normal dining spots near the Fox were jammed so we decided to try this. Had no idea what to expect. Didn't know it was cafeteria style. While the atmosphere and ambiance is non-existent, I have to give it a 4 star because of the unique experience with the way orders are placed and the quality of the food which... More

I visit hear for dinner two or three times a year. The prices are phenomenal. I wish the food was as good as the prices. Still, I have never had a 'bad' meal. It's convenient to the Fabulous Fox Theater. Cafeteria style keeps prices low. The chicken is great as well, although most come for the steaks.

I started going here for lunch many years ago when I worked for the Woolworth Regional office. This was one of Friday lunch destinations. The atmosphere is unique - service is done at a counter where you order your food when asked "Next"!. Burgers are served on Texas Toast. You can order a burger or a steak dinner - either... More

The food here is pretty good and reasonably priced. Though it is popular with all the locals it is a big draw for the theater crowd making the style of dress vary between the customers. As a first time customer I was intimidated at first and was glad to see a line so I could learn how the ordering system... More
