Waited way, WAY too long for incredibly average food. Just don't go here, you'll wait longer than you would in a busy restaurant. I had three people ahead of me and waitied nearly half an hour. Never again.

I liked it more than my wife. I had the #20 - I forget what she had. Mine was really tasty, but quite messy - should be cut in half. Drink was included in the lunch special, and fries were good too. A little pricy...More

Soooo good! It was perfect for the daytime lunch with walking around and exploring. Also perfect for the late night dish! We must have eaten here 5 separate times! Great food and good prices! Definitely a must stop!
