We have been there twice because we know it is good simple food. If you are away and eating too much heavy, saucy food, and you just want a simple and delicious meal, then go here. The chicken, sausage, and steak are all good. Not drowning in anything, just cooked on the grill and served. Also, the bean combination salad is light and nutritious. The french fries are a good side dish too, big potato wedges. I would recommend this restaurant because it is reasonably priced, the service is good, the food is delicious and simple. Get a table near the window or outside, so you can people watch up and down Columbus Avenue.

Chicken is near perfection. Try the half chicken with a side of peppers. Too bad it's closed Mondays!
