Absolutely love their burgers and steak fries! Although a very small place, they manage to seat quite a few during lunch. You know your in a good place when all the locals and workers eat there. Just East of the railroad overpass on East 7th Street.

My family and I have been coming to this little spot for years. I have tried the burgers, paninis, fries, fruit, desserts, etc. I love ordering the chicken panini or a cheese burger. The fries are delicious, the fruit is always fresh, and the staff is always nice. I would recommend giving his place a try.

Features great affordable lunch specials everyday. Chicken tender plate w/ side salad is always good, in less they run out, which they sometimes do. Great service too. Gets busy, so arrive early. Mainly a dependable quick lunch spot.
