The food and the service were great. I had the Turkey/apple/cheese/apple butter sandwich. Delicious. My husband had the meatloaf sandwich and liked it very much. The service was great as well.

Have eaten here several times. Usually pretty good. Today, cheeseburger was almost burnt. Tasted like cooked in old grease. I couldn't finish it. Fries excellent. Cold slaw very good. Had great customer service. Just off today.
