Great soups on our visit. Most items were done right and tasted execeptionally well. The chicken sald was good--but nothing special. Other sides were excellent.

The options are tasty and consistent. I would like them to add more vegetables to their menu, like eggplants, carrots, squash, peppers, asparagus etc. It could be cooked, like a vegetable medley or added in their salads' option. Then I would give them an excellent!
