Comfortable relaxed atmosphere, friendly help and good food. Had cheesesteaks, burger, fries and the onion (which is better than onion rings). So far we are 4 for 4 with a great experience. Also nice to see regular customers recognized by the staff.

We stopped for a quick bite for lunch. The place looks like it is leftover from the 80's. The cheesesteak were ok but not high quality. The prices were low and the service was friendly and fast.

We stopped here for lunch. I asked for a special sandwich with sautéed onions and hot peppers and both were left off. One of my dining partners requested extra sauce put on the sandwich, which didn't happen. The other dining partner enjoyed his sandwich which...More
