This is a typical small-town restaurant with a pretty good assortment of choices. One thing I do know is that they make good burgers. Good service and attentive waitstaff. Overall a good place to have a quick meal.

Menu has a good variety to choose from. Eggplant parmesan, taco salad, and enchiladas are all very good!

Everything tastes like it was frozen or out of a can. I am SHOCKED this place stays in business. Soup was Campbells and cold!
