Great place to stop in Spring, Summer and Fall have a beer and a steak sandwich on the deck. Most of the help is made of of local high school and college kids, service is usually pretty good.

We have been there many times. Only once have I ever had a cheese steak I did not consider very good. Service is sometimes a little slow but the wait is worth it.
