Stopped in for breakfast. Service fast and attentive. Accommodated some add-ones to our order. Food came out fairly quick. Tasted good. Didn't break the bank. Would we go back? Sure.

The food is delicious, and the prices are great! Everything I have had is piping hot and fresh. We go at least twice a week. Their breakfasts, lunches and dinners can't be beat!
