I wanted to try a Muffaletta so I researched TA and found this place. We stopped in and was surprised. According to TA it was take out only, but they DO have a dinning area now. It was quite cozy. We really enjoyed our dinner....More

Come Back Inn has been around for years and is your basic go to place to eat. It is not fancy, but the food and prices are good. You will leave with a full stomach and not an empty wallet.
