1 server, 10 tables rotating in and out, and she never missed a beat! Service was excellent and food was scrumptious. You can't beat homemade fries - fabulous. My husband had the sweet potatoe fries which were also homemade and fabulous.

We both had burgers and......wow they are big. Problem is that they are too big for the bun and toppings, what a mess. Good stuff and value though. Interesting decor, all in all. It was a good lunch.
