This restaurant is right in front of Hampton Inn next to Denny's. We went there because it was safe to walk there and it was close by. I'm giving it a lower mark because it was somewhat expensive for mid level food. Also, we got the staff randomly walking up to pitch things. That was a good education for my... More

We visited this restaurant a couple of times on our trip. The first time was for lunch and our server did not appear to like serving gringos although the food was quite good.

This was close to our hotel ( The Hampton Inn) and served very good food. Though the menu is mostly chicken dishes, there are a few other things too. It is also quite reasonably priced. The staff is quite helpful and most speak very good English.

This restaurant was within walking distance of our hotel so we thought we'd try it for dinner. Inside it was clean but dark and difficult to read the menu. But the roaster chickens in the oven looked fabulous. Service was a bit slow but friendly. Our meal was not very memorable. Average food, a bit bland and very small portions.... More

Chicken is on the menu here. Succulent, juicy, roasted chicken in many forms. Lots of good sides too. The service is Ok, the staff is not bilingual so there may be a bit of a problem ordering. Otherwise, good fast food at a good value

You'd never be able to get food this good next to a motorway in the UK! Its by no means glamorous, but the food is great, its a good price and arrives quickly so you can get on with the rest of your journey! Has free wifi and clean bathrooms.
