This place offered a limited menu from The Backburner (next door). You can sit down and eat in here too. I haven't personally eaten here, but I buy the Better Cheddar dip from here. It's a must try! Staff is friendly and place is clean.

We stopped for lunch and enjoyed the choices on the menu. The small little café type setting provides enough various seating for everyone. The food was served warm and enjoyed the simplicity in the meal..
