I went here during the week for lunch with coworkers. It was packed but we found a seat at the bar. I had turkey chili and half of a hot turkey sandwich. Both were very good and the service was excellent. I will be back!

A fabulous place for a burger (but they have other menu items). It was a generous size, really juicy and messy to eat with all the toppings I chose, but well worth it. I finished off the meal with a piece of coconut cake that...More
