This is an all inclusive restaurant...but, Philly Cheese Steaks are their "claim to fame." Lots of down home country cooking in a very friendly atmosphere.

Comfortable relaxed atmosphere, friendly help and good food. Had cheesesteaks, burger, fries and the onion (which is better than onion rings). So far we are 4 for 4 with a great experience. Also nice to see regular customers recognized by the staff.

Like all the reviews under this restaurant, if your looking for modern, fancy, or chic you will not find it here. If they fixed it up you would pay 10$ for that same cheese steak. Come here if you want a clean place that serves...More
