Not a huge selection, but I have eaten here multiple times and have no complaints. Come hungry because they give generous portions and have great coffee.

Pay before you eat? Owner is the cook that doesn't know how to cook and is very rude. Some of the driest eggs i have ever had. In my opinion they should not even be in the restraunt business.

Prices are outrageous. Flies flying around your head when eating. Had a dirty glass and utensils. The mustard bottle had something dripping off of it and a dried ring fell off when opened. Child menu portions are to laugh at. Ordered chicken which is a...More
