Wait staff was great. I heard the cooks, guy wearing a hat complaining about he couldn't smoke. Order a double burger special. Undercooked hamburger patties, and only 13 tater tots. The side were cheese sticks and shrimp, both burnt super burnt. It sucks to see...More

I didn't sense that there was anything special about the meals here. The Philly had a fresh taste, the chili definitely had a bite to it, and the house salad was some mix of spring lettuces.
