Popped in for a quick bite on our travels and were pleasantly surprised. Food was quick and very tasty. Staff were helpful in choosing from a large choice. Could easily drive past this place but definitely worth the visit if you in the area.

Personalized service and the smell of fresh ingredients greets you as you step into this local favorite. So hard to decide with more than 50 chives on the menu. Looking around at other table it is easy to see everything looks good! Large portions, freshly...More

I tend to lose my appetite when the portions are too big. Ordered a combo soup/sandwich. The half sandwich was the size of a whole sandwich in my book. The lemon chicken rice soup was great but a big bowl rather than a cup. Everything...More
