“best grill in town”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

the lunch specials are the best deal in town, great prices and fresh food. the asian chicken wrap is too good, big enough to share but too good to not finish yourself.

“Hard to find fresh items.”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

We had a large group with a diverse selection of items. The fried items from the fries to the shrimp are obviously pre made frozen and refried. All lacked taste. You would be better off to go to Culvers next door, you will get the same food, faster and for less.

“Regular food in a regular place.”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Service was good and the food was fine. Nothing spectacular but clean with good service. Price was okay. I had mac and cheese which was pretty good. My husband had fried chicken, also good but no gravy for the mashed potatoes. Not a bad choice. Just average.

“very good food”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

We had a fairly large group and were seated quickly. Breaded pork tenderloin sandwich, shrimp basket and cajun pasta were all very good. We enjoyed our meal in the air conditioned dining room but then moved outside to the patio for drinks and more visiting. Service was excellent.

“Very good, cheap for lunch!”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

We stopped here along the way to Des Moines to eat. They had a great $6.50 lunch menu, with very adequate portions. It was great food, for 3 of us (2 adults, 1 kid) the total bill was $19.xx. I would highly recommend for lunch.
