There wasn't one thing on the menu that I would rush back to get. Terrible is a plus to describe it. Open the window and throw your money in the wind. DRIVE BY......

We stopped here by chance. At 6:00 on Saturday we got seated immediately which was great. The food, however, took a LONG time to come, 45 minutes at least. That said, it was very good when it finally arrived. So, if you have plenty of...More
