They have very good salads for the money and fast service. The unsweetened tea is just right. I am not a big sweet fan, but everyone in a while; I eat one of the large delicious cookies.

Having read some reviews that indicated the food was excellent here, I was somewhat disappointed the few times I have eaten here. Maybe I prefer a more robust meal and not into the health-food trends. The ice tea is excellent -- good thing.

We ate her twice during our stay. We were traveling with a Basketball Team and we had approximately 20 in our party, they were so accommodating and great customer service.

A good try as a Jason's,etc upgrade but the food, for the most part was nothing special,though my wife rated the salad and dressing very high. My BLT was very forgettable. Service was an upgrade as they do deliver to your table. Not a bad place if you are in a pinch on the road.

Been here many times since I'm a local. Food is great. Service is always provided with a smile and management seems to be heavily involved with day to day operations. Good place to eat and hang out and talk. My wife and I enjoy the atmosphere....sort of open and modern. Clean bathrooms too. The only reason I didn't give 5... More

This is your typical chain restaurant but the food is always good. I do eat here on a regular basis because of the service. The staff as this particular restaurant are super nice and helpful. The service here is top notch, I'm typical ask 3-4 times during a meal if I need anything.

Working in the area, I have had 3 lunches here so far, as the salads (Chicken Caesar, and Chicken with fresh berries and pecans) are great, and the ice tea and lemonade are really good, too! Nice staff and service, as well.

Thank elissejo
