I like to go here for lunch. They have so many great options - you really can’t go wrong! I personally love their chicken tenders and Mac n cheese!

Had a quick lunch with colleagues today and chose mostly from the Mexican food on the buffet. Good choice for vegetarians. Guacamole was good while everything else was average. Quite expensive for what you get.

Grocery, deli, and bakery is too high priced for the quality. The soups' sodium is way too high for healthy consumption. There are a few good items to purchase.
