“Expensive and left hungry”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Menu was expensive for the amount of food you got, I could have probably had two sandwiches, didnt get anything besides a sandwich with the so called basket, no chips or fries, small portions, cramped area, very little seating, left hungry and with an empty wallet, will not return or recommend, could have gotten better food and for cheaper down the road

“not your average hot dog!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

This is a great place to stop for a variety of the "fast food" but it def. is from scratch. Always something on the menu for everyone! Parking can be a problem as it is located on a busy corner. Calling ahead beats the lunch rush!

“No great food here”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

I ordered the Chicken Shawarma and The Tabbouleh with a side of hummus. The chicken Shawarma is not like any Chicken shawarma i had ever had in life, Never had it served with a dill pickle in it. it must be a yooper type of Shawarma.
The Hummus was over garliced and too spicy. So this too must be a yooper type of Hummus. The Tabbouleh.which had no parsley and very few tiny pieces of cucumber in it.about a 2 oz serving with a 1 oz side of Hummus served with a 4th of a cucumber and 4 slices of a tomato. for 6.75 was priced too high and they called it a basket.

I lived in an area of Michigan (near Dearborn) where they had great Chicken shawarma and great tabbouleh. This was nothing like it. not even close .

“Hot Dogs & Fries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Hot dogs and fries is what I usually order... the fries are GREAT - hot and fresh. Good value for what you get. I try to stop in there every time I go to Escananba

“Great Food and Great Staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We stopped at the restaurant today hoping to get a decent brisket beef sandwich and found a great spot for that and much more! They have a great selection of fresh healthy food and the sandwich I had (in house cooked beef and natural cased sausage) not only hit the spot but compared to Al's beef in Chicago (rated as one of the best in the country) and was a pleasant surprise to say the least. But here is the side note that I want to share.....when we tried to pay their online credit system wasn't working and after minutes of trying they picked up the tab for our meal! Even after offering to pay with Canadian funds (we didn't grab any US cash before crossing the border yesterday) they refused and insisted on picking up our tab. Who does that? I highly recommend this restaurant for not only their great food but even greater staff!! Thanks guys!
