I have been going here since high school and all of their locations are still fantastic. You just can't go wrong. Nothing is bad. I am so glad the restaurant is still around!

I really like their soda machine--so many flavors! Great hot sauce collection, too. This isn't fine cuisine but solid fast food in downtown Bethesda.

Last time we were here was at their previous location. Now that they are on the corner with beautiful outdoor seating there's so much more room. The food was fresh and delicious. We sat outside on a Wedsnesday night and the town was hopping. The...More
