This is a great spot for happy hour! Definitely try the Belgian fries! They have a variety of sauces to choose from. The samurai sauce is a local favorite. The flatbreads and sandwiches are good as well!

Good place for lunch. Burgers and fries are amazing. A great variety of sauces for your french fries. Service was a little slow because there was only one waitress on the shift. Overall, good. Would definitely go again.
