I have to be honest, this was my favorite place to eat when I worked at NCC in the mid 90s. I took my son there often. I moved back to the area 2 years ago and I finally got back. Hasn't changed one bit....More

We always eat here on our way to Trader Joe's and Carol Stream. It's a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere with good, quick service and very tasty food.
