No matter how many times you visit, the atmosphere and the food are the same and that's a very good thing. You don't have to guess about the quality of service or the food so you can just relax and enjoy your meal.

A colleague and I enjoyed lunch here a few weeks back. Delicious food, generous portions, reasonable prices, and fast friendly service. Will be back next time we're in the area.

As always when we go here we come out stuffed. We enjoy the feast for two served on trash can lid. That's pretty cool. We have enough leftovers for two more dinners
