Very fresh, quality ingredients. Fresh brewed tea always ready, delicious specials and one of the best roast beef sandwiches anywhere. Great service too.

We love eating here. The food is great, the prices are reasonable and the staff is always very friendly. What's nice also is they will heat up any of their takeout meals so you could have it right then. Highly reccomend Chef Buddy's.
