This place is in the Point Loma area and also close to San Diego airport. You order your food ala 'fast food style' but it is 'sit down quality'. You can choose a hot meal or a main dish salad and other options in between. There are outdoor tables. Definitely would go there again.

I work a couple of doors down and went here for lunch. The selection is minimal and the menu is confusing. But the food is yummy, especially the mashed potatoes and barbecued chicken and bread. It is pricy so will only go here once in awhile.

We had never eaten here and had a tough time choosing our meals. The girl at the register was really patient and helpful. Excellent meals. Excellent staff.

Being from South Louisiana, I've never been to a place like this. Luckily I was with some locals which made ordering easy. The food is fantastic. So fresh and tasty. I would love to have one of these close to my home for sure.

I love this place. I tried a couple different dishes then got turned on to the albacore steak (cooked, not rare) with mashed potatoes and OMG, this is an amazingly great dish! Great service but note, this is a self serve line to order and service happens once seated. Their drinks are so good too, with free refills. Try this... More

I go here often and it is consistently good. The food portion is just right. It is always freshly prepared, well cooked and well seasoned. I would recommend the big plate with the ahi tuna, but everything is pretty good. It is a bit expensive for a casual dining experience, but good enough that I continue to go back.

The cobb salad that I had for dinner was the best ever! The next day I went back for lunch and it was great too. The oatmeal raisin cookie that I had was delicious as well. Very nice and courteous staff.

I understand it is a franchise, but there are none near me, so coming here is a treat. You can get food quickly, but it's real food. You have choices of sides and greens, entrees, I can't imagine anyone not being pleased with the choices. I was in the mood for soup. There were two choices. I was allowed to... More

Stroll through the line and make your choices to a friendly cashier. You get to the end there's your food. Fast and delicious. I had the ahi tuna with a butter lettuce salad and some of the best mashed potatoes I've had. Forget something? Want more water? A friendly helper will get it for you. I'd eat here every day!
