Was not pleased with this visit. Dirty environment, poor service, and very over-priced. Had to pay extra for chips and water with the meal. I would not go back for a meal there.

A simple place that serves great sandwiches that are different from any other restaurant that I have been in. I’m sure many will end up taking half of it home. Great place for lunch.

A very nice eclectic place for great bites. Tomato bisque was exceptional and the Blast was a blast! Bacon, lettuce, avocado, Swiss cheese on toast. The owner really cares.
