The food is very good! The only minus is that the place is a little dirty but other than that the place is great.

Went there with a group of 12. They sat us in the banquet area. Quick service food came out fast and hot. Very affordable place to fill up.

We visited for breakfast even though our hotel offered free continental. It was busy, but we enjoyed the friendly atmosphere. My eggs, toast, bacon were all fine, and spouse's omelet and potatoes was also tasty. Better value than similar restaurants near Chicago.

I have no idea what is going on at the downtown site. Good food at reasonable prices. But, the management & some employees need a kick in the rear. I have stopped going there.
