Learned this franchise is owned by mid-west farmers; every item we had was delicious; so fresh tasting- loved the healthy alternatives. Highly recommend.

The waitress apologized when I asked but there was hardly anything I could get (she suggested steak or salad). I went with the salad which was pretty bland and the cold chicken on the side came close to disgusting.

The staff was super friendly and eager to answer any questions. The New York Sour was a delicious cocktail. Bacon pops are definitely worth it. The fried chicken with doughnut was amazing. I'm definitely coming back next time I'm in town.

The food was fresh and delicious. The ambiance was very businesslike and this fact struck me as a place not conducive for a relaxing meal experience.

No idea what email or who Sadao is, presumably an employee. Try calling the restaurant. They are very prompt in answering.
