Went there for the Bloody Mary's. And man we're they good. Not filled with all the groceries but good still the same. Although they did use V8 instead of tomato juice which was great!!!

This place is huge! They had a lot of options and samples for their cheese. They even had a nice cafeteria area to eat lunch. The cafeteria sandwiches were okay.. lunch meat was a little dry. But we came for the blocks of cheese anyway!
