The service here is always friendly. The food is consistently good. They have a variety of soups throughout the week and their hamburgers and fries are alway hot and tasty.

Good fried foods at a cheap price. I recommend a stop here if your in the area. Try the pizza burger. Bowl a game or two when you're finished eating.
