Housemade potato chips, all kinds of satisfying sandwiches--we loved Grown Up Grilled Cheese with just the right mix of cheesy meltiness, Great Reuben--more sauerkraut please! and the roast beef cheddar melt was exactly as promised. DON'T MISS the sweet potato tots--I've never tasted better ones.

The service was on point and super friendly. Food was delicious. If I had one near me I would be eating there all the time. Bathrooms smelt of bleach; strongly! Over all great! I would go there again!
