We stopped for takeout this week at around 7 pm. You have to love a campus area for cheap good food! The restaurant is tiny with seating for about 20, but it looked like only 1 table with more than 2 seats. We were ordering...More

If you want a normal dining experience with room to move, do not come here. It is a hole in the wall with very limited seating. Do not come with a party of more than 4 people, best if only 2. Food is prepared right...More
