“Yummmmm”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

It was pouring down rain. We stopped in to grab a bite for our family of 5. The staff right away started asking questions so they could assist us with saving money in placing our order. They were super, they really knew their menu & prices and made it quick & easy to get back on the road to our hotel. We mentioned hotel and they immediately started packing plates, plasticware, napkins, EVERYTHING we needed, for not being at home. Thanks again for going above and beyond.
