I love their omelettes for breakfast, and you can't go wrong with their hoagies for lunch. Add a side of fries and you are stuffed!

I noticed alot of negative reviews for IB's but i love them. They have to deal with a lot of rude people and they are always busy. They are always courteous and professional. One thing I do reccommend is to call your order in ahead of time to save on the wait.

Please be aware that you may not get your order. I went there today and placed an order for a sausage sandwich and large fries. After a long wait, they called out my order. The sandwich was handed to me, and I was told the fries were coming. I was told this more than once while standing there, while other... More
