I've been coming here regularly on the weekends. Very fairly priced food and drinks, super friendly staff! It's usually slow whenever I come as it is usually later at night but I hear it gets packed during the day. Good atmosphere!

The food was great and there was a TV available for every seat in the house. Aplus was having up to 3 or 4 games available to watch at all times. Keno is also available to play and I guess just the atmosphere in general...More
