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!

Stopped in for lunch after a visit to Lookout Mountain and riding the incline. My husband and I both had reuben sandwiches and the homemade chips. Absolutely delicious! So glad we found this place.

The menu is written on the wall in chalk. Great fresh sandwiches and sides at more than reasonable prices.
