When you are charging up to $35 for a signature drink then I think you can afford a better Point of Sale machine that is so beat up and rust covered it looks like it was from the 80's. After noticing that, we saw that...More

Hi, I had the short rib French dip sandwich and it was very good. My hubby had a burger, he also said it was good. Be aware, it is pricey, and the service was slow, but we enjoyed it none the less.
