I stop there occasionally but I'm getting the idea that I need to always specify how I want something or it'll be "not what I want".... The chili is good, but the chili dogs are impossible to eat because they cover them with chili and...More

For a quick bite, breakfast, lunch or dinner, this place is conveniently located. Consistently good food. Note: when it's busy, the restaurant can be loud.
