We eat lunch there 2-3 times a week . Barbara is not just a cook but a real "CHEF" and comes up with different foods every day. The waitresses are by far the best around.

This is your perfectly ordinary, run of the mill, small business restaurant. The food is perfectly ordinary. The decor is perfectly ordinary. The staff, though, are a very good, especially the older dark haired woman with glasses -- she was awesome.
