Always a nice treat to stop in and grab some fresh chicken. They have sun-drop in a bottle which is a big plus for me.

Excellent chicken and homemade dipping sauces. The salads are amazing. Everything on the menu is tasty and never frozen. Everyone in the community is addicted to this place!

The food is great, especially the garlic ranch or creamy garlic dressing/dipping sauce. Food is very fresh!! The only thing I don't like is the dining area. It's always so cold to the point of being uncomfortable.
