Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Would just like to clarify that there are two places: One a tiny little place with limited seating and 1/2 mile away an actual sit down restaurant with the same quality food - only prices a bit higher. Do they have the same name? Thanks. We area headed down there on the 24th of this month.
