Had lunch here and ordered couple burgers. They were tasty and reasonable. We sat in the picnic tables provided and it was nice. No inside seating is available. Credit cards are taken.

I have passed Sugar's for years but never stopped there to eat. Either they were closed or I was in too much of a hurry. I must say that I was disappointed but I will try it again. It could have just been a bad...More
