Yes, the loads of chicken fingers--and great chicken fingers. Enough for lunch tomorrow too! But they also have gluten free items for those who can't enjoy the chicken fingers. I've had the chicken parmigiana, and the chicken cordon blue. They are good. Very nice to...More

It's a short 10 minutes away. From the SNHU Ctr, drive north on Elm st thru the downtown for a mile or so. Take Right at lights at Webster Street (Rte 3/28). Puritan is on your right in about another mile or so.
