I decided to try something different this visit.I ordered Beef noodle soup and a Caesar's salad.I wasn't very fond of the soup.I found the beef to be tough and chewy.The Caesars salad was very good.I highly recommend it.

No polite or friendly greeting upon entering the restaurant. Disorganized. The staff seem to cater to their own.
