“Ugh... Never had hot food here”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

I have eaten here 3 times and never had hot food. Last time, one of the workers cleaned the bathrooms and THEN proceeded to clean the tables with the same towels. Definitely won't go there again!

“average”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

I personally did not love the food but it was acceptable, and average.
The restaurant seating is very awkward.
There aren't many choices in the area, so this restaurant in that sense is okay.
