I'm not sure why this place has so many great reviews. I met a friend there for lunch today. I chose the chicken parm for $11.00. Since the only thing it comes with is chips (which to me just does not go with italian food) I paid the extra dollar for a side salad. The small sandwich arrived and the coating on the chicken was a very dark brown, just short of black. I thought it was overdone and was told it was not. I must admit they were correct and it was not overdone and it was tasty. It was not, however worth $11.00. The piece of chicken was very small and was barely covered with cheese. My friend got the Rueben and also found it quite lacking in the amount of meat. The serving of chips she received was also quite sparce.
I see no reason to return.
