I have been to this place twice. Once last year during the Summer and again this past week. The food is “just ok”. It’s priced reasonably but it took 45 minutes to get our food. Don’t come here on your lunch break if you have to get back quick. The reusable ketchup dispensers need to be replaced as well. The lids are almost white from being washed so much. How much do these things cost? Come on, really? I have had the lasagna and chicken fingers, fried and slaw. The lasagna is basically Stouffers, the slaw was dry and discolored and the fried and tenders were decent for what it was worth.

We stayed at the Wingate behind the restaurant. It was so good we ate twice. We went inside to order and carried it out. You can also eat in and be waited on. My wife had a salad and I had a steak & mushrooms sub. We also had the onion rings (not the best). This place is cute. The employees were very hospitable. Great place!

This is our go to place when everyone wants something different. We usually do takeout and the service is prompt and efficient.

Prompt service. Great food. We have made it a weekly habit to eat with them at least once each week . We visit the area weekly and always eat with them for lunch or dinner. This time it was dinner.....it was packed. That does not matter. We were waited on quickly and served just as quickly. The food is great , no matter what we order. You should plan on stopping here next time you are in the area

We were a little hesitant to go inside at first but the staff was friendly, so we stayed. We're glad we did! The fried chicken was delicious, but small. We've also had the pizza which was also very good, and heated up in the microwave very nicely the next day. I think the place could be cleaner but overall was a good place to eat.
