Terrific food - we tried toasted bacon and cheese, nachos and ice cream sundaes. Chatted with the chef owner - lovely young lady. Definitely would recommend trying it out.

Just looking for a sandwich and pulled in to try Father's. All 3 of us loved our meals. Inexpensive. The fried pepperoni on my sandwich was the best I have eaten. We will return.
