Nice place. We were just passing through and didn't want fast food. My husbands Ruben was very good. My cheeseburger had all the makings of a great burger but the meat seemed like a basic pre-made patty. Waitress was great.

Took five college kids to thank them for helping us move our daughter in. Fries - wonderful and huge portions. Oreo shake - who needs dinner. Start with desert. Brisket sandwich- well, it was scrumptious. Service was top notch.
