You pick a protein from two types of chicken, steak or albacore tuna along with what type of salad you want and what veggie. Mostly healthy pretty good and the mint lemonade is very good. Line moves quickly.

Cafeteria style, line up to order. But the food was excellent. The steak was cooked just right and the fried chicken melted in my mouth. The vegetables were perfect. The manager said everything is locally grown and fresh meat, not frozen.

revelers scream with delight riding the roller
