My go to place when I want a yummy meal and decent prices. I love their bacon, arugula & tomato sandwich - it is the absolute BOMB. And their home made chips & fried pickles rock as well.

Came for lunch after the noon crowd. Waitress very good, attentive, and helpful. Kitchen not overly busy, but took quite a while for our burgers and fries. Hamburgers were great, my fries were cool and stuck together. Good flavor however.
