My kids favorite restaurant. Not the cheapest but they sure do enjoy it. Building is older and and interior shows it’s age but staff are helpful and nice. Haven’t had a bad meal yet, always good.

Went for date night. I errored trying to make the prefect night. The manager went above and beyond to make sure my plans still worked. Service was superb also. I could not afford a gratuity high enough for this type of experience.

The food is well presented and you cook it yourself. It takes time to cook each bite. You end up eating slowly. Each bite cooked to your phone timer. You don’t use the phone for texting or surfing just the timer. It’s fun for a...More
