Description
American Artisans is a great place to enjoy a quiet and delicious lunch. We offer soups, salads and sandwiches all made in house. We brine, marinate and cook all of our meats. Our salad dressings and sandwich spreads are developed to compliment and enhance the overall flavor of the salad or sandwich. Our hand-cut and fried potato chips are a specialty served with our Chipotle Aioli. Our gallery is filled with high quality gifts, hand-crafted in the USA.
