The portions are oversize, but the quality and taste do not suffer. Getting the special combo of a 1/2 sandwich and a small side salad is the best bet. There is also the produce (salad) bar that will keep the veggie people happy. For barbecue lovers, the bbq chicken sandwich is more than adequate, and the sauce is sweet sharp... More

Our dinners were nothing to rave about, nor did I see other's plates that looked anything more than average. The desserts looked good but we didn't have any.

Wow, you won't come home hungry..The more than generous portions are outstanding .. We absolutely love the country fried steak, meatloaf, chicken pot pie , Coconut Shrimp and the chopped Cobb Salad. All family favorites and perfect each and every time we enjoy them for dinner or lunch.. The waitresses are always friendly and efficient and the atmosphere is delightful.... More

This chain is one of the better ones. They have a large menu. The food is always good and the portions are HUGE. The salad bar is varied and fresh. We brought my Mom here for lunch and she loved it. I had the jumbalaya and it was delicious. Everyone had to get doggie bags. We will definitely be back.

Thank Debra M
