Used to go there often haven't been there for years due to rude staff. Expensive for what you get too.

Just a nice friendly place to eat. Good service, fairly priced. If you are a local, you will see your friends there. Restroom surely could use updating. Yes, I will return

Pros: Very generous portions of food. Food was decent and is served with appropriate condiments. Atmosphere was nice. Cons: They are a cash only restaurant. The difference between a half order and a full order is only 20 cents... I didn't want a full order,...More
