Slow counter service, but food was good. Would probably order from there again, but would likely call ahead.

I went there for the first time hoping to get a quick dinner to take home. The ribs were good. The chicken was super greasy. Mashed potatoes were good, tasted homemade. Salad was not good. It tasted like it had been sitting for a while. I gave it 3 stars because I wanted to be fair. I will give it... More

I go there for their turkey sandwiches. fabulous! real roast turkey roasted on the premises with stuffing (if you want it) plus lettuce/tomato/mayo. other take out foods are top quality. i love this place. just wish they didn't stop carrying their terrific chocolate milk from a local dairy, it is (was) the best in town.

The place used to be good. Over the years their menu selection has shrunk. Whatever choices they still have, locals can get at supermarkets next door or across route 9. Last time I got ribs and wings. Wings were overcooked and ribs were undercooked. They've always been pricey but food was consistently good. Now it feels (and tastes) overpriced

I only eat the turkey, but it is really good. The sandwiches are substantial and mostly good for two separate meals. The side dishes vary in quality, so be careful in making those choices.

the food is great, and the people who serve it are very friendly and helpful. this is especially good if your usual home dedicated chef is away and you need a really good filling meal. choose your type of meat, and get sides of vegetables and gravy. its all good and can be a real life saver!

Had to be next door for a bit and thought, "it's been awhile", though the smell of the rotisserie was calling me so I heeded. As always the meats - ribs and BBQ chicken were superb, but the green beans too soggy and even slightly burned and crunchy. The stuffing was even more glutinous than last remembered. Probably most concerning... More

Chicken is well-seasoned. Many sides to choose from - I just wish there were some healthier side options (like ones without a ton of oil or butter).

I've been here several times and tried their their wings, their ribs, their roast chicken and the corned beef, with the latter two being my favorite - consistently flavorful, juicy and tender. I was quite disappointed with their ribs (not too flavorful, a bit overdone). Opt for the sandwiches/rolls instead of the dinner portion as the side dishes are underwhelming... More
