Very friendly wait staff. Great food. Try the fried chicken filet. Oh my goodness, the breading was heaven. Loved the mashed potatoes. Taste like Mama's. The price is lower than the quality. It's a value. Hubby liked the French dip.

We ate here for lunch and it was relatively quiet and had fast service. The portions were huge. Split a Ruben sandwich platter and got full. Ok prices too especially for kids. The kids plates are a bit over $5 without drinks. Would eat there...More

Wonderful lunch. Bloody Mary was delish and spicy with peppered vodka suggested by server. I had the brisket sandwich which was very good. Selection of bbq sauces was a great addition.
