The food and service was average. The food was not as flavorful as I expected and my daughter found hair in her food. The waitress wasn't very personable. One good thing is that it was off the beaten path so there were no parking issues.

Waitress was fine but the food took FOREVER!! I ordered the mushroom pizza and it was delicious, someone ordered black bean burger and they loved that, 2 ordered Asian noodle bowl and neither one cared for that. Both said it was bland.
