We had a wonderful lunch.The staff were incredibly busy. They were packed and doing a wine tasting as well. I had my first Breakfast biscuit. Absolutely delicious. Cory had recommended the biscuit.

Single source Patty's with bacon and all the toppings and fries. Add in their garlic aioli sauce and you have one amazing burger at a great price. This is my Friday lunch spot.
