Ordered grilled ham and cheese and it came only toasted, not so great, usually very good. Ham is always good. Fries are really good, order is huge, lots of food.

Stopped in for an early breakfast. The portions are very large. The food was delicious. The skillet had 4 eggs on top of the large portion of meat. Great place in a plaza.
