“What's with all the hub-bub?!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2011

I'm new to the area and I went here on advice of co-workers. For all the hub-bub and praises this place got online and publicly, I was not impressed. Everything looks and tastes like it's cooked in the same base sub-gum sauce and has little flavor. My fried items were chewy, not fresh. Saw the cooks smoking outside and running their hands through their hair in their aprons they cook our meals in.

“What happened?!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2010

We've been going here for 30 years! Our first date was here! We're so sad that they've dropped the ball. The last few times we've gone it's been progressively worse. We'll probably give it another chance, maybe they just need to get rid of a bad cook? The breading was too heavy and the sauces were tasteless. They have the same dining room staff so maybe the girls will report back and changes will be made? I hope so.

“Won't ever go there again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2009

We used to like this restaurant, but after seeing the cooks standing on the back patio out the kitchen door with their aprons still on and smoking cigarettes and even saw one picking the paint off the railing, we will never go there again. I would tend to say they aren't very clean.
