One of the best places I've eaten in on my trip so far. The service was excellent, I had the most amazing Sandwich called the Reuben. Such a friendly place, a definite must see

We came in here will the kids were miniature golfing. We had there famous chili dog as a snack for $1.75. It wasn't fancy but seemed to be doing a steady business and it was very friendly.
