Good food, friendly servers

Ate here for breakfast twice. Good food, friendly wait staff. Due to the serengeti theme, there are tons of plants blocking the light fixtures, so it is very dark inside. Okay for dinner, I guess, but kind of strange for breakfast.

We probably would not have eaten here if not for that, but we are thankful for that storm as the meal was great. Really good eggplant rollatini and ravioli. The pasta sauce was excellent. It came with a nice... More

The wings were just out of this world. There were over 14 varieties of wings. If you are in the area it's a must have.

If you want to bring your toaster oven and stop at a local supermarket - do that. Everything from the frozen section at a supermarket.
