Great place to eat! Love the house salad. Had my parents 60th anniversary party there had great service and a warm and inviting place.

Linos doesn't have a salad bar. Their salad is a special Italian salad with romaine lettuce, tomatoes, sliced eggs, sliced sausage, Parmesan cheese and their special house dressing. It is the best salad! Try it you will love... More
