Chicken Cesar Salad had fresh lettuce and chicken, dressing so-so, good sized portion, overall simpler than one I would have prepared at home. The waitress was welcoming and friendly.

Another favorite place for Italian food while traveling on the road because of their consistency from location to location. Not fast food, which is nice. Being vegetarian it is nice having unlimited GOOD salad with dinner as well as Breadsticks. Pasta is always consistently good too.

Excellent service and food. We were traveling and stopped for lunch, fast excellent service and extremely tasty food. Portion sizes were excellent, although the salad, soup and bread are all you care to eat.
