I have eaten there several times and they have the best sandwiches in the area. I have also eaten breakfast there, and it was made to order. The place is small, seating is limited but the service is good and the food is great.

Just letting folks know the place is closed so they don't come in and waste a trip. If you miss this place you should go to Charley's Chicken. The service is top notch and the chicken is great.
