Great location in uptown Normal. Just a few doors down from the Normal Theater, and within a 5 minute walk of the beautiful uptown Normal park and train station. Small, expanded location...well designed. I would consider a fast/casual restaurant. Food is served in baskets with...More

We came late, in the last open hour. We had no issues getting hot food super quick, and enjoyed the fine meal. We also enjoyed trying out the Pepsi drink machine, and have only seen Coke machines before!

I eat here at least once a week since it is a block from my office. I usually get the Rock Salad with extra dressing. Everything is made fresh when you order. I recommend it for a quick lunch.
