The food is very good but I think they are very expensive for burgers and sandwiches. The dinners are priced well. The servers are very pleasant and the place is clean.

They offered a very nice daily blue plate sort of special. I chose the chicken salad salad with the homemade ranch dressing and I am very glad I did. The waitress was fantastic and provided great recommendations to our large group.
