I stopped in to grab a quick lunch and much to my surprise the special of the day was Sloppy Joe's. I had not had one in so many years! What a cool place with team sports posters on the wall. It's definitely not fancy,...More

We have been here several times since it opened years ago. We usually go once a month. When the previous owner was in charge it was friendlier than it is now. The food is still great but staff just isn't as friendly/chatty, it's like it...More
