I grew up just down the street, and though I've moved away from the area, I have been eating here (usually take out) for nearly 10 years every time I go back to visit my parents. I crave this food when I'm away, and it's the first place I go when I'm back - though I'm not back often enough! I think in all of those years I've only had 1 somewhat disappointing meal where the food seemed a bit off. This happens, though, when restaurants are training new staff, and generally it's consistently very good. The staff are always very friendly and attentive. I'd eat there much more often if I still lived in the area. Some reviews complain that's it gotten pricey. It's surely more expensive than the storefront pizza/fast food places in the area, but for informal sit-down restaurant fare, I think the prices are pretty standard.
