Our team routinely orders lunch from "Once Upon a Grill." It tastes like a "NY Deli" (if you like NY): fresh breads and meats, just tasty, affordable, filling and fast!

Always crowded at lunch time, it's a challenge to find a place to park in this strip shopping center, and then wait for a table after you place your order. This is a very popular spot with the local older set, and they tend to...More
