Stoped at this gem when family was at St. Mary’s Hospital. Grabbed a bacon cheeseburger and fries. Food was pretty good. If your in the area and want a decent meal, at a decent price. Stop in.

Although we came at a busy time, our server was very attentive and our food was excellent. I particularly recommend the suvlaki. Don't use the menu on the Trip Advisor site. It's not current, so go to the restaurant's website.
