We shared a couple of appetizers and had a few drinks. The chicken lettuce wraps were amazing and we really like the chicken quesadilla as well. Service was prompt and friendly. We would eat here again.

No wait, seated immediately. Fast service and great burgers. The fries were delectable, so much so, that we ordered more. They had a variety of desserts but we got full on fries so we opted out.

Kind of a sports bar with booths, tables and TVs. The food selection was very good and reasonably priced.

This place was recommended to us by a local who confessed they had not visited in some time. We decided to give it a try. Afterward, when I told yet another local that we thought it was average, they concurred. There was nothing unique or special about the staff or ambiance and the food was, as I wrote earlier, average... More

Stopped on for a quick dinner. Kids meals came in these cool cars and they were delicious, according to the kids. The burgers were maybe the best I have ever had. Didn't need a ton of seasonings because the beef was so good. They don't have burgers like this in Maryland!

My husband got the steak special, it was OK, but by no means really good. One thing to note is they do have a children's menu and our waitress Junior was very good with our kids. She learned their names and referred to them by their names. I got the fried chicken salad. The chicken tastes like a frozen chicken... More

Fish and chips super greasy! Turkey club was huge but nothing special beyond the size and waffle fries were very good. Service was good and friendly.
