Have eaten there one other time and food was good. Took friends this time and every dish ordered was just terrible!! Worst grinder ever had, soggy bun, filling sparce and awful. Hamburger must have been left over from lunch, fried chicken tough and stringie. Spaghetti over cooked. Complained and they did nothing!!

The ambience of the new place is a little lacking (sterile, almost), but the food is great. Nice portions and real homemade tastes - house dressings and bread are fantastic.

My girlfriend and her family this this is the best pizza in the world... I think it's pretty good but definitely not the best I've ever had. And whoa it's EXPENSIVE.

I like that I know I can get a good buffet at anytime. The rolls are delicous and sure to pump up carb levels. Pizza is good, any topping. It is spendy, so visits aren't frequent and we usually have a coupon.

We decided on Mama Lacona's for a rehearsal dinner after visiting several other restaurants, and we were not disappointed. We had a group of 64 people in the private room on a Sunday evening. Management took all the time we required to make decisions on food and drink ahead of time, and the night of the dinner the wait staff accommodated our every request and with a smile on their face! The food was every bit as good as the service! We limited our guests to ribeye steak, trigger fish, chicken and lasagna. Everything was delicious.
