Visited with an old friend. Definitely the place where the locals go. Very good food. Had pulled pork on a toasted home-backed roll. Wife had chicken on a roll. Reasonably priced. Will visit again.

Great asset in our neighborhood. Food is great and well presented. Wish you would add a bit of style to interior eg flowers and more comfy chairs.

I have been meaning to go there for a while and eventually got the time to go. The menu is small enough and diverse enough that everyone can have a good meal. The specials of the day make choices more difficult as everything is appealing....More
