Love everything on the menu! Great staff, always a positive experience. Fried chicken has the best flavor, and is not greasy at all. Pasta sauce is my favorite of any place, so you can't go wrong with any of the pasta items!

Very nice place to eat. Good variety on menu but we are very partial to the fried chicken. We split a dinner and walk away so full!! Trevor is a fantastic and so personable. We are regulars and do carry out often!
