We've been a couple of times for lunch. Very family friendly, (or noisy kids) Order up front and they call your number, so no real service. Pretty good food. The best thing I had was their cornbread salad.

First time to visit. They offer all types of homemade sandwiches, salads, and soups. I ordered 1/2 chef salad which was huge and bowl of vegetable soup. Chunky and good. All for under $6.50. I will be back soon.
