We had lunch here and were very happy that we did. The food (Thai Peanut Wrap, Cheddar Bacon Burger, and French Dip Sandwich) was excellent with ample portions. Our server was very attentive and friendly. The outside patio where we ate was cool and comfortable...More

Thirstys has a casual atmosphere with many good food and beverage options. Their burgers and wraps are great! Weather permitting it is fun to be outside. I have never been disappointed with any meal I have been served at Thirstys!

Wow ... we didn't expect such a pleasant surprise at Thirsty's. This little "hole in the wall" has great food. The only thing that I would not rate high was the fact they were understaffed and it took longer for lunch than it should have.
