Good Reviews Correct

Nothing fancy, just nice. Pad tai was very good judged by the two who had it. Price was low. The place was pristine clean including the bathroom. I liked it so much, I am sort of glad it is not too close to where I live. The owner/operator was there and helped us order - that sort of place. It... read more

Interesting location. It's an old grocery store building in a residential neighborhood. I like the way it looked. The food was ok, but the portions were much too big and expensive for lunch. My husband and I couldn't split a plate because we don't like the same things. I probably won't go back for that reason and it's an out... More

I had lunch at Sullivan's with two use was associates last week and was very pleased. I've driven by the place many times and wonder about the food at such a small restaurant. None of us were disappointed! Everything I the restaurant is homemade from the Thai to the chicken strips...nothing out of a frozen sack or mix. It's a... More

Don't let the no frills fool you! An eclectic mix of southern fried cooking and exquisite Thai food. The very best vegetable fried rice EVER. Double hamburger A+. Chicken strips A. Very fresh made to order. Wish I could come back again!

Been here before. It's always good. They are no longer open for breakfast but lunch and dinner are great. They close at 7pm and are closed Sunday and Monday. The fried rice is good and so is pad thai. The American food is good as well.

My husband and I eat regularly at Sullivan's as the food is consistently excellent, the atmosphere always friendly, and the service is great. It is a family business, with all members working there at one time or another. The Thai food is my favorite. Mrs. Sullivan (the cook) is a native Thai and a great cook. Sullivan's offers daily specials,... More

Stumbled on this place, nothing special decor wise, however owners & food great. Prices good. Definitely not a chain restaurant which is always a good thing.

Have eaten here three times and have had pad tai and fried rice. Both are amazing! We eat a lot of Asian food everywhere we travel and their tai dishes, though limited in selection, are very good! They also do some good southern food. If in town it is worth a try!
