Great menu with unique choices. Enjoy the food, waitstaff is hit and miss. Parking sucks so I only go to the Dash-in if I'm doing something else downtown and already parked somewhere near there and can walk.

The atmosphere was friendly. It seems to be more of a bar than a restaurant, with the food being more of an afterthought. The spinach salad was large but unsophisticated, esp. the purportedly "balsamic" dressing, which was a thick sauce not a typical salad dressing....More
