Labor Day in a college town eatery was predictably slow. We were welcomed by a friendly staff and enjoyed a family gathering after driving about an hour. The "traditional" mozzarella sticks were, in fact GREAT! However, be warned that the so-called Ruben sandwich is a poor interpretation of the real thing. The meat was tough and suspiciously reminiscent of packaged meat. Everyone was attentive and the other meals (house salad, chicken-fried steak) were on-par with such an establishment. Just remember where you are when ordering.

We visited this place at lunch hour on a weekday. The food didn't come for about 40min! People that came in after us were eating & done before we got anything on our table besides our drinks. We ordered hamburgers & sandwiches, nothing fancy, just greasy! One of our group overheard one of the waitresses tell our waitress that she had canceled an order! So we figured that our girl had to put in our order all over again. She could have been honest instead of ignoring us! We had to keep asking where our food was with just her saying that it would be out soon. Then leaving was also a slow thing as we asked for two to go boxes and were given only one. Our waitress had two in her hand but walked off with the other one. So the other waitress walked by and we got one from her. We didn't appreciate being treated like we were not worth they're trouble. Next time we will go someplace else.

Met a large group (30+) there for dinner and drinks. I personally thought my food was very tasty. Everyone had a great time conversing and thought their food was good. The servers did a great job considering the size of our group. No complaints from me. I'd go back.

Canned, Frozen or Fried... That's what you're going to get at this place. The atmosphere is fair at best, mostly because of the odd table/chair layout. The staff seemed very lethargic, and I couldn't figure out why they would include a mexican section on their menu without offering any mexican rice or trad. hotsauce? Plus $11 for frozen chicken fingers & fries w/ canned beans? I'll pass next time...

It's the only alternative to Bruffs in Emporia if you want to eat a burger and watch the game. The environment isn't on par with Bruffs, but the service is considerably better. The food isn't any better either, and is kind of pricey considering the quality... $11.00 for a chicken fingers basket!!!

Still, the service beats Bruffs. And that alone makes it a viable option in Emporia.
