food was undercooked and when asked questions server did not know the answers and just stated no... so I asked him to ask and it turned out the answer was yes... needless to say I would have been better off going to Ihop or Denny's

Went by for lunch this afternoon. Totally closed down. Sign says new venue coming soon. Odd that a restaurant so close to I-45 on 61st. couldn't make it. Maybe tried to be all (or many) things to many people. Watch this space.

The staff overall were very friendly. The food was so-so at best. The prices weren't bad. It was a greasy spoon look with out the greasy spoon quality cooking. The restaurant was fairly dirty, and the hours are absolutely terrible. Get there for breakfast, and...More
