Good food; fast courteous service, plentiful menu; quiet enough to talk (if you sit in the back) but it has hard walls that reverberates noise. Fellow travelers recommend for dinner. - But noisy!

Burgers were great. Nachos were enormous and very good, unfortunately they were topped with Salsa that tasted like Pace Picante Sauce. This is a big place with great ambience. Large selection on the menu.

I would say yes! They have a large room on the back and rooms upstairs as well. I would request the back one if they can accommodate you as it would be easier access to salad bar and people in your party won't have to take... More
