I didn't rate this higher because when I work late and don't get home until 7 - it's to late for me to pick up anything here. We love the Turkey burger - get it loaded with what ever you want. Does NOT taste processed,...More

We were in the area with family and saw the restaurant. I got the cold plate with traditional chicken salad. The food was delicious! I enjoyed the taste of it, Cole slaw and potato salad. The proportion of food was perfect for the price!

Best time to visit is after the early morning rush. Restaurant interior is cute and clean. The overall seating area is quite small and compact. The decor is sort of Diner style, but in an attractive way. There is a decent 'sit-down' bar which doubles...More
