When I'm in town on Tuesdays I like to go to 2 for 1 burger night. Since my wife loves the fried mushrooms she rarely wants a burger so the staff finds me a burger buddy to share the half price. The burgers are fantastic with great meat and fresh bread. And the fries and mushrooms are great. Did I... More

This local sandwich place has been feeding Monroe for over 30 years. With a wide variety of options there's something for everyone. The table is always served a bowl of sliced pickles to munch on while making your decision on which sandwich to order. Every night there is a different special deal and my favorite is 2 4 1 chicken... More

My client wanted a large draft beer selection so I choose this 1 one my favorites for that reason. We all choose the Fatty melt, which is a newer addition to the menu. Its a patty melt place between 2 geilled cheese sandwiches. It was good but needs less mayo. Would have like a fry option w/o cajun spice. Marina,... More

Called in an order at 11:45 for pick up at noon or so. Just a simple bowl of potato soup. Got there at 12:10 and order was no where to be found. Waitresses were sullen and seemed totally disinterested in who needed to get the order together. Finally got my order at 12:35... and the soup was a BIG disappointment.... More

This is the 3rd time I have eaten here this summer. One time it was so good. The other 2 times it was not as good. The Monte Cristo sandwich was good the first time I had it but this trip it was not good. It was more like french toast with syrup. The roast beef is usually good bit... More

This is one of our favorite places to eat when in Monroe but I'm very disappointed they took cottage fries off the menu, I can't find them anywhere else. We had a great meal as usual but that let me down

We had the fried shrimp po boy and the grilled crawfish po boy - very tasty. The potato salad was also very good. A beer lover, my boyfriend asked for recommendations and the waitress and bartender were happy to oblige, bringing samples for him to try. We left full and happy. The staff was very friendly! Cute place.

This place is so cute and they have the most awesome burgers in the world!! I love the sweet bun they serve it on. I love that they put a bowl of pickles on the table for you to snack on. You won't be disappointed if you visit this restaurant!!

Stopped for lunch. My Wife and I ordered sandwiches. Their menu is quite extensive with a lot of choices. DO NOT USE THE RESTROOMS. Absolutely FILTHY. Someone needs to explain to the employees that they need to get in there and really clean. Toilet was broken in the men's restroom and a sign on the door, IF DOOR IS CLOSED,... More
