Fantastic mom & pop kind of place. All food was great, and fantastic service. Great place in small plaza in town. Definitely worth the short drive.

A great place to stop off to grab a wrap before heading up to the lake. Nice selection of options, with a quick turn around. Tasty and of a decent quality.
