The restaurant was recommended to us by a friend who came upon it when transiting thru Slidell. The food was great...had the rueben special. Service was excellent and the photos and other military items were interesting.

I'm not one to usually eat any kind of sandwich but that all changed after going here. I got the chicken sandwich with a side of onion rings thinking I may not like it since I was going out of my comfort zone

We will definitely be back! Great food, friendly service and a great price. They have all sorts of different food. It was seat yourself which was different, but it works. They were very busy, but nothing was lacking.

It really is one of my favorite places to eat. I can't say I've ever had a bad meal there. Most of their food is as good as it gets. The killa fries are just that...killa!

We stop here often. The food is delicious and reasonably priced. The killa fries are one of our favorites. The service is always good. It gets a noisy when it's crowded but otherwise it's perfect.
