Great philly steak sandwich. Great service in a very well kept place. Easy parking, good service. Makes everyone feel like family. Gives back to our community as well. Had a soda, philly steak and water ice for desert. You can't miss with this place 👍

The food and is really good! My favorite item would be the buffalo chicken fries! Always taste the same and they are amazing! Have had a few different things from the menu and was never disappointed

Delicious food! Good people. Support this gem of a local business. The buffalo chicken sandwich is good as are the Philly cheese steaks (obviously).

If you read other reviews you will see this is not how we conduct business its quite the contraire. The issue is being addressed... More
