The chicken is fantastic! And they have great side dish choices. It's a great idea for work parties or lunches.

I've seen this place on TripAdvisor get good reviews, and we always meant to drop in--but we never got around to it. This weekend we finally got around to it, and I am so glad we did!!! I've said before that I am from California,...More

We often order this for our Marriage Prep weekends and workshops we conduct on Saturdays. The roast chicken with salad and potatoes with buns. It is less than $10 each plus tax.
