Potatoes are extra large and loaded!! I've been many times to this location, and never been disappointed. I'm di ed in as well as ordered take... More

All three of us had something different & loved it! The Chicken & Dumplings, Tortilla Soup and turkey sandwich were all good. Fast service & very hot food! You shouldn't be disappointed.

They make a mean Ultimate nachos. I highly recommend this location. I've been to many, across the country, and found this store to be best staff, best prep, and best value.

I have been here a few different times. My family was in town and loved it. We haven't had anything bad so far. The peach tea is great! The bathrooms have always been clean. The service has always been good.

I go there a couple of times a month and haven't had a soup or salad that isn't fantastic. I always try something different, and so far everything has been terrific, and very quick.
