The menu is a bit intimidating. Food it not quick. But, the food is great. Go early to beat the lunch crowd.

Healthy option for lunch. Salad selection is awesome, and very large portions. Always fresh and lots of choices. Location is a bit out of the way, but worth the trip down Mapleview.

The current sandwich feature, the Mexican Cemita Sandwich, is the best thing I have eaten in a long time. The sandwich features a chipotle mayo, avocado, grilled chicken, cheddar cheese, and is served on a jalapeno-cheddar bun. I will definitely be back for this sandwich!
