Daughter suggested this place for a reunion with college kids. Food is great- and at happy hour prices. Fried green tomatoes are a must. Salads are huge and service wonderful. Worth the time to stop here!

I was very surprised by the quality of this restaurant given its location near a walmart and typical chain restaurants. But, it was terrific. The menu was casual, but very interesting and the service and good were great.

Will you be serving a "Thanksgiving type meal" between 12 noon and 1 PM? We will be in Phoenix to visit family that want to watch football in the afternoon. Thanks
