The restaurant itself is nothing fancy. I am in my 50's and the restaurant reminded me of the small, local diners that we went to when I was a child/teenager in small town America. The food was tasty and the service personal. When I was...More

We stopped here based on the reviews. Was pretty much what we expected. Food served hot and tastes better than a fast food burger. I had chicken and others in our party had burgers. Food was reasonably priced. Service was a little slow, but we...More
