Food was excellent and staff was very friendly! A must visit if you are looking for something that is NOT a chain and overpriced. Will be back on our next visit.

Not too bad of place. The customer service is very good. The place is utter chaos but the system seems to work well. The food is pretty good, not outstanding but pretty good. Prices are average in my opinion. I would go back.

That's a great question. It's a very hand on place and they have a definite system. When you first walk up to the restaurant there's a person there to put your name on a list. I'd talk to them when you first walk up to... More
