Just think what you would pay for a fast-food meal for two. For about $18, including the tip, I had access to a salad bar and an entree. The server was great. The food is like home-cooking and that's fine by me.

Good food and good service at good prices. Our chicken was delicious and the dressing for my salad appeared to be freshly made. The lemon meringue pie was exceptional!

It’s about 2-3 miles. Head South on Outer Belt, turn left on Fayette Ave. it’ll be on the left side of the street, just past Phillips 66/Jack Flash. If you passed S Raney Street you went a little to far.
