If you're a little tired of the usual fast food choices, this is the place for you. Located a little off the beaten path in the Hannah Plaza (east of the MSU campus). Caters to the college crowd. Open to 3am most nights, 4am Thu-Sat. Delivery available. Decor is mostly pop culture posters of movies and musicians. Take out or eat-in. There were 6 4-person booths and 6 2-person tables. I don't think they ever get totally filled, so you should be able to find a seat. Service was friendly, usual employees appear to be college students. Took only 5 minutes to have my order made. Now what do they serve? Their main thing is something termed a "dub". It's basically freshly cooked meat and veggies wrapped up in a big tortilla. They have many varieties of dubs. I had a Fajita dub which contained chicken, cheddar, mozzarella, lettuce, tomato, green pepper, onion, and sour cream. It was absolutely delicious and filling. Most dubs will cost $5.75-6.50. A smaller version called a "dubbie" will run $4.00-4.75. BTW, there's no trays or plates. You just unroll the aluminized paper the dub is wrapped in and start eating. Gets a bit messy, so grab some napkins. Also available are some salads, broccoli cheddar soup, and cube shaped fries. Coke products available, $1.50 for a medium with free refills.

Although the food is tasty, it can get a little pricey. If you get one of the smaller sandwiches, you may be a bit dissappointed for spending as much as you did. They are not very filling, but they taste very good.

You can't really go wrong with a dub if you're hungry. I haven't had one that's not good.

It's hard to describe a dub except it's a grilled wrap stuffed with yummy food. They make a fajita dub, a buffalo chicken dub, and some other yummy dubs. Limited menu and it's not the fastest service. But the food is good and cheap! So tasty!
