Apparently the selection changes somewhat daily. We... More

There were three pasta salads and I only liked one of them. The mashed potatoes were excellent. The desserts included only pudding, cobbler and soft... More

All in all, this is without a doubt the best bang for your buck for good home cooked food and service! I have eaten at the... More
