Great selection of veg available (I love green beans). The meat was fresh and everything was reasonably priced. Nicely laid out and clean and will definitely come back for more!

The meats were good but the vegetables were cold, hard and unseasoned. Like frozen veg. It was good at one time but definitely gone down in the last 2 years. Won't go there again.More
