Our two sandwiches took 45 minutes, and they should have taken five. They have a pothead vibe, which is okay, but they run the place as if they were 5 stoned guys making some money for weed. Plates and glasses left everywhere. A total mess!...More

Was bummed to see the University of Iowa location had closed, and was then ecstatic to see that there was a location in Madison. Not on State Street but close. The White Widow sandwich is our FAVORITE late night treat.

This was a GREAT place for lunch. The messaging was perfect for those of us who were part of the 70's! It was a great escape from the cold! Good food, quick service...no wonder they are a franchise.
