Ordered from the 2 for $20 menu. On this visit we had oriental chicken (grilled) salad with fried mozzarella sticks. Very good but what makes it exceptional is how fast they have it ready and their promptness to deliver to the car.

We stopped in after a long 9 hour drive. They were busy but they handled it well. Our food was good, the menu has changed since the last time I visited. It is located on a busy highway, shared space with the Best Western.

One half of wrap literally only had one small piece of chicken and looks like they tried to fill with coleslaw as they must have been out of lettuce. The other half had a few small pieces. I ordered quesadillas and again... More

On our last visit we had the $20 special with two entrees and an appetizer. We used the take out option and as always they were prompt and courteous. Their take out is very customer friendly as opposed to many. You have designated parking and even more important they are watching for you. We had 2 specialty salads on this... More

Friendly staff and nice atmosphere but the food was subpar. The ribs were overlooked and dry. The stir fry was under portioned for the price. First visit so we might try again. If your really Hungary for tasty food try another place in town.
