Restaurant details
Reviewed February 8, 2013

I wouldn't know about this restaurant if I hadn't been told by the locals. The menu is huge but, my personal favorite is the Salted Pepper Chicken Wings. I've never found anything to compare in any other city and the wings are outstanding. In fact,on Super Bowl Sunday, they had so many orders that they had to take orders outdoors at a special table because there wasn't enough room in the restaurant for everyone who wanted them for take-out. The word is out. Try this place. Three of us had a large-portioned lunch yesterday and the bill was $21.00. With such good eating and a right price, who can go wrong coming here to just give it a try. Promise: you'll return - !

Have always done take-out. Whether you call in or order there, it takes about 10-15 minutes and you are out the door! Good food and fast service. Recommend anything that is salted pepper!

Even the small party tray feeds a lot of people. If you are not sure which size to order, just ask, they are very helpful!

Always leave full. The lunch special is the best value anywhere.
