Outdoor seating. Seat yourself. Quick service both when seated and food delivery. Cooked to order. Not a big menu but plenty to choose from.

We ate here last year and enjoyed it. We had a hard working waitress back then. This time, they were extremely understaffed given it was a Sunday Packer game and the place was packed with people from across the street at the basketball tournament. We...More

Wow! So, FYI, your food was served exactly as it was when you gave a good review last year. One way we can keep cost down is using wax paper, this allows us to provide FRESH, REAL food at prices LOWER than your place with...More
