Friendly, hearty, simple and delicious fare. I can honestly say their brisket is the best I've had outside of a smoked barbeque joint. Their catering approaches perfect.

Perhaps a bad day on one preparer's part. My sandwich was GREAT, I ate every bit and would've eaten more! My husband asked for light dressing and his sub was drenched. His preparer seemed annoyed by his hearing aids. Sad, but true.
