Established well over 25 years ago a place where you come with a healthy appetite as the portions are typically American.One of our specialties includes our home made 100% ground beef burgers which are 6oz and are hand made on the premises daily plus we have a selection of homemade sauces to compliment most meals.All our meals are cooked fresh to order so at busy times please be patient with us... it will be worth the wait.We serve a wide variety of dishes so why not come along and join us for any celebration, Birthdays, Anniversaries, you name it and if you have any special requirements lets us know in advance and we will do our best to accommodate them.
