Fabulous eating place, good value and excellent foods. Staff could not have been more pleasant, helpful and informative. Ate here regularly on our break. Any foods we didn't know staff gave us samples to try.

Mediocre food,service and atmosphere. I rated good only because lady (owner) is nice and actually tried to make us feel welcomed.
