This restaurant has undergone some revitalizing since we last visited a couple years ago. We stopped for lunch May 25, 2017. The restaurant seemed to be very popular with local people. The atmosphere is not fancy. The furniture is retro 50's in the main part of the restaurant. The exterior is plane Jane looking too. The food is ok. You... More

This place is awesome! Food is great and served in generous portions. The service is amazing: after ordering a stake, manager came to apologize for running out of that particular cut and offered an upgraded cut. We can notice they are really committed to offer great service to their clientele. And aside all of this, their prices are unbeatable.

Few things make days on the road better than good food, and the food here is absolutely amazing. The steak sandwich and fried chicken are my favorites. And the staff is kind, courteous, friendly. Just an awesome place. You need to stop and eat here.

Excellent food, especially anything BBQ'd or the fries. Service WILL be slow if you go between 4-6 but I guess the crowd is a testament to the food!

This was my third and last time trying this restaurant. The first couple of times was immediately after they opened and it was not a good experience from servers to food. We decided to give it another try. Although, the cashier asked about our experience and we told them how bad it was, they made no effort to fix the... More
