A great lunch spot with some surprising gourmet twists! Our two vegans loved the Dahl soup, the wings were meaty and delicious. and the fried chicken to was top notch. Easy to miss, but don't miss out.

We always go back for the fried chicken as take out. Very good! Workers are friendly. Also have a little deli, haven't tried it but everything looks good and fresh.

Thanks for the kind words! We've taken our fried chicken to the heights: these are great birds, antibiotic & hormone-free. We cut them by hand & brine them for 24 hours, then coat then with our special seasoning. Glad you came!
