Quaint restaurant - generally enjoyable experience for budget dining out. I found the pork roast to be OK for price paid. Staff were enthusiastic and friendly. If you are looking for a hot meal for reasonable cost in a convenient location this is your place.

Went here when we saw they served ribs. The sauce on the ribs was delicious, but you don't get a lot of ribs for the money you pay. Service was OK.
