“Okay staff w/ slightly below average food.”
Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

Walk up and place your order (like Panera Bread or Chipotle) and put your number on your table. The atmosphere is fine, the service is okay, but the food wasn't nearly as good as either aforementioned chains.
The salad I had (Taco Salad) appeared to have lettuce from a bag, salsa from a can, and lacked flavor. My wife's side of broccoli may have been the worst we have ever tried (all four of us thought it was terrible). I went due to a TA recommendation, but was rather disappointed. We will not be back.

“Well worth a visit!”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Great food and ample portions. Our server was busy and was hustling, but still took the time to visit and answer questions. Comfortable atmosphere, not crowded on a Wednesday night, good background tunes.

“Great food, moderate prices”
Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Quite possible the best chicken salad sandwich ever. Broccoli soup also was great. Total cost $12 with drink.

“mixed results”
Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

The breakfast sandwiches were great.
The Bennie was just ok. With so many Bennie choices, I thought the original was a safe bet.
It was a very fun spot for breakfast.
