The Thursday special was good, meatloaf. The sandwiches are big. Two people big. Some members in our party enjoyed the Swordfish sandwich while others liked the BBQ chicken pizza. Atmosphere is dated. Service is good+. Prices also good.

A wonderful value. John is one fine chef, and the dinner was outstanding. Creme Brulee was the best I have ever tried.

We're located on the NW corner of Bobier Drive & E. Vista Way in the Mesa Vista Center. We're a little hidden (located behind the Auto Parts store) but worth the effort. We have a full restaurant and bar with plenty of seating.
