When we arrived all of the 12 or so tables were occupied. All had drinks, but only 3 had food. We ordered and it took over 50 minutes to get a cheesesteak and meatball sandwich with fries. It was apparent the meatball sandwich and fries...were under the heat lamp; they were barely warm. Funny thing is, when the owner walked in, everyone's food started coming out of the kitchen. Our server tried very hard. Not sure if they were short staffed, but a Tuesday night isn't the busiest restaurant night of the week.More

I can’t speak to the interior of the restaurant, but the take-out order I got, a philly-cheesesteak was excellent! I would heartily recommend them.

My husband and i stopped here for dinner while traveling south. No one is following the governers mask order or social distancing. The bartender and wait staff have their masks under their chins! We called ahead to inquire about outdoor seating and were told that...they have outdoor seating.... however, upon arrival we were told it was closed for a private party! We waited 1&1/2 hours for our food to arrive. The waitress just put our plates on the table and walked away.... when i finally got her attention to ask for butter for the bread.... i was given some sort of immitation spread that i could not use! I ordered eggplant parmesian which i could not eat because it was like chewing on a wet sponge. My husband shared his chicken parmrsian with me which was pretty good. I would not stop here again!!!More

We went for dinner and drinks on 8/14, the place was not very busy at all, and we saw plenty of staff. We were seated right away. We sat, for 15 minutes as staff walked by us. We never got service. The staff seemed more...concerned with milling about near the drive thru. We left after 15 minutes. Too bad to, we just moved to the area and were looking for a place to hang out occasionally.More

Food was OK, however, in light of the fact that we got takeout, it would have been nice to have been provided with napkins. Five meals ordered and we got 3 plastic wrapped sets of silverware/napkins. No additional napkins. 2 salads, 3 sandwiches took over...an hour.More

This place was an easy stop off of 95 with good atmosphere and food. Our waitress/bartender, Agnes was on it! She took care of the crowded bar as well as waited on several tables with efficiency and friendliness. Someone in the kitchen knows their stuff!

My significant other and I were meeting friends there. It’s a little hard to find given all the businesses located in the corner lot. Once inside, we were quickly waited on. I had the manicotti, which was really good. My significant other had a grilled...chicken sub that she said was delicious. Our friends had chicken Parmesan and a small pizza. No complaints. The place is obviously a local favorite as it filled up after we arrived, I would definitely return based on our first visit.More

I'd love to tell you about my meal but as I've been here for one hour and only had 1 glass of wine, I really can't. I've never been anywhere and waited so long for a meal. I'm leaving in 5 minutes to go to...Bojangles before they close.More

We had a big lunch elsewhere and decided to get appetizers for dinner at Fo Sho. I had brocetta and my husband had 10 boneless chicken wings. They were both very tasty. We did not order anything else.

We have been here numerous times ( while visiting or traveling through). It has been good and a little less than good at times. We bought a pizza here a few weeks back and it was amazing, but bought one today and the garlic taste(...or just off taste) was horrible! It was a simple cheese pizza, and I took the pizza apart to try to figure out what went wrong. The sauce was decent, not to stong, but the cheese was strange tasting almost like an over abundance of garlic (almost a fake garlic powder taste). This time they got us, because we took it to go, if I would have been dining in, I would have sent it back and went across the street to Pinos! They may not be as fancy, but at least I know what I am getting every time! I hate leaving bad reviews, and I really want to like this place, but please step it up...and do not rely on a name or past reviews! Remember that you need the customers more than they need you...There are plenty of places to eat...More
