Passed by here several times and finally stopped in with my girlfriend to grab a late night snack. We split a cheesesteak that was absolutely fantastic and tater tots that were golden and crispy. Prices are very fair and service was great. Didn't get raped in the parking lot either so it gets 5 stars from me!

Thank KatnKev

Friendly enough staff, and they try to make you welcome. THIS IS A SMOKING CAMP; we had swerious trouble breathing, even in the [outdoor] "non-smoking" annex. Food was good, not THAT expensive, but it's too smoky to enjoy.

A true dive restaurant. The food is fair. The bar is very, very small and very, very smokey. If you enjoy being in a cigarette while it's smoked you've found heaven.
