Widely recognized as best on the county. Small and personal with friendly service and well cooked food. Crowded on weekends so get there early if in a hurry. Otherwise, he prepared to wait. Big crowds often mean best food.

Good prices, good food, and a pleasant atmosphere make this a delightful lunch stop. The waitress seemed distracted but was anxious to please. There are less than a dozen tables and the central lighting is florescent overheads, so the window tables are in demand.
