The servings are huge, the burgers hard to finish, the desserts original, and the pizza the best. Friendly staff and owner make a weekly visit necessary!

The pizza was kind of small but the sauces that they bring to the table made the pizza 100 percent wonderful! They also had beer and fun smoothies.
