We all went here today for lunch and it was really good. I had the Large Chef Salad and it was really good food. All I can say is that you can't go wrong by eating here.

I don't know if they're open on Labor Day; however, their location close to I-75 makes that a possibility. I'd suggest calling them to ask.
