It’s definitely outdated, but the food is excellent. I’ve never had anything bad, but the chicken fingers are the best. Great mudslides too! Be prepared for a wait on weekend evenings.

It's a short 10 minutes away. From the SNHU Ctr, drive north on Elm st thru the downtown for a mile or so. Take Right at lights at Webster Street (Rte 3/28). Puritan is on your right in about another mile or so.
