It was an awful experience-- the owner was extremely rude to my 95 year old mother. I do not recommend this restaurant.

We had dinner and we should have selected a different restaurant. Service was slow and their phone was more important. Food was warm and tasted like it was cooked yesterday. Do not plan to visit again

The chicken salad here, is a salad with grilled chicken on it, as you would expect, but with a ton of shredded cheese that melts deliciously on top. I have ordered chicken salad at many other places since eating it there, but none can compare....More
