Have been eating at this restaurant for over 5 years and enjoyed every visit. They have different special items each day along with the regular. Food is always hot and very tasty. You can look at their menu on line. Would recommend.

I am not a fan of either. Too much salt and overly cooked vegetables. However, when low on $$$ and need something to eat...it's better than a 3# Extra Value meal. John Boys and Judy's are places we go and I swear "never again"...until the...More
