Good home cooking and a large variety of item, so we pick up dinner every night and take it home to eat in our relaxed atmosphere. There is nothing that isn't good!! I like having vegetables and feel like it's easy to order healthy meals! My favorite is the grilled salmon...it is superb!! So I guess you'd say I live... More

Good country cooking. My daughter had the meatloaf and said she rated it a 10. I had the pot roast and it was really pretty tasty. Our service was excellent. The prices were good. The place was clean even the bathroom was spotless. It's pretty close to SFA so the prices are reasonable so any student could eat here. Axe... More
