Amazing food. A wonderful experience in house you don't normally get to get to experience 5 star food in. This place catered to our needs and the owner gave us a ride home when no taxis were available. Our recommendation is a 5*!!!

Not sure about this place. We ordered a reuben sandwich and waited and waited and waited. When we got it, it was cold lunch meat and cold cheese thrown onto some regular looking bread. Strange. Although the place was not busy, we had very slow...More
