The food here is very good and the atmosphere is pleasant. The place is always packed and there is a line so get there early at lunch to beat the rush. You cannot go wrong with the daily special.

Parking can be a challenge. We arrived for lunch at 2:00, one hour before closing, so I expected to see a few empty spots on the steam table. But food on the cafeteria line was as fresh, hot, and well-stocked as if they had just...More

And boy was I excited when I discovered they were. Roast pork and dressing with squash casserole. Servings were almost too big, but I survived. Love that they offer scallions on the side, just like my mom when I was a kid. Will definitely be...More

If you mean "four" rather than "hour," it's 5-6 5 bucks. Can't remember the exact amount.
