We love to rely on Idle Hour for last minute dinner plans. We'll call in and not wait long for our order to be picked up. We love the gyros, but I know the burger and cheese curds are also awesome!

This was amazing (for the price especially!) We only spent $11.50 and got fried cauliflower, a chicken sandwich & a cheeseburger! They were very good! The server wasn't ridiculously friendly, but she wasn't rude either. Definitely would eat here again!
