I've been there a couple of times. On this most recent visit, they were out of chicken which was disappointing but had a burger instead and it was really good. One of the great things if you have kids with you is that on Mondays...More

This place came up on our GPS when we were hungry and happened to be going that way. It was a good choice but it is really pricey. A burger and fries is $13.00 or more. The choices are interesting. We liked our Wine Country...More
