Meet friends there for breakfast. We were seated right away, order taken promptly even though the place seemed pretty busy. Good was good and the people were very friendly.

Been here 3 different times, breakfast okay, the lunch we had was steak bites. Way too salty and tough. They always seem in a hurry for you to leave, in fact asked if we would pay before we even finished eating.

My wife & I stopped here for breakfast after church. We were seated immediately & orders taken in good time. Wait staff is courteous & friendly. Food was brought out surprisingly fast. Our food was hot & tasty; a good value for the price.
