Not a very good restaurant the 50s theme is nothing more than a few movie posters on the wall and the food is very generic something I can grab from the grocery store and make nothing unique.

Nice lunch yesterday, nice clean place, friendly staff, very good steak and cheese sandwich. Daily menu written on big marker board looked interesting. Want to go back and try white beans and cornbread.
