Went there for lunch and was very happy with the fast service and the outstanding pulled pork sandwich. I would go more often if it weren't on Grape Road / was closer to downtown South Bend.

Have eaten there several times. We especially like the "Feasts" that they serve family-style (on an inverted garbage can lid).
