Great food, atmosphere is great for watching games. Try the sandwich with all the stuff on it. Can't think of the name, it has fries, slaw, bacon, cheese, meat, etc. Only thing that is left out the name. :-)

We enjoy coming here due to the staff, from Dave to Heather, Alica and Shauna. We travel to quite a few restaurants, but always enjoy Panini's.. The week day happy hour prices on beer are very fair and the half price apps are usually enough...More

If you come here in the evening be prepared to stand in a long line and wait. Other than that they have good apps and the food is very good. Its a very noisey place people having fun!
