My daughter is a student at WOU and this is her favorite place. We have been there numerous times and it is always great food and we really enjoy the owner. I have read of rude behavior but my experience has been just the opposite. My daughter and her friends love the guy. The place doesn't take reservations but I really wanted to make sure we got our whole family in for graduation and he set us up. He even told me that if the ceremony went long, no worries, he would hold it for us.
Again, the food is great. Have enjoyed everything I've tried. Independence/Monmonth doesn't have many choices, but this place is terrific.
