Had lunch with a coworker on Saturday. I had the California tacos and she had the French toast. It was really good food, and service was great. I enjoyed it.

Service was really good. Food was good. Waitress brought me the wrong dish, not what I ordered. She immediately put in the right order. All worked out well.

Visited here with a friend. The staff are friendly and helpful and the service was quick. The menu was your average fare and the price was reasonable. The food portions were decent and the burger I had was tasty. Decent food but nothing exceptional.

Hello nikkiv99! Yes, we did change our ribs a few years ago. They are tossed in Greek seasoning and butter, so if the cooks use too much butter they can be pretty greasy. I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the chicken wings, I absolutely...More

The menu is available on line, but if you go to the restaurant you can of course look at a menu to decide whether or not you like what you see.
