We went for lunch. Turkey club is wonderful as is the cheese burger. Fries are just so so and the homemade potato chips are really good.

Great service. The 60/40 burger was awesome! Also the best onion rings we have ever had. We went for dinner and returned again for lunch before we left town.

We frequent this restaurant 4 or 5 times a year. It is similar to a Chili's or Applebee's. The food is good with decent prices for drinks.
