A middle of the road place to go for lunch, friendly staff and a clean and tidy place to eat. Limited food choice but tasty. Other side of the island from town

I asked for a burger without the bun (travesty I know) which usually gets at least an odd stare but not a problem here! The even loaded up my meal with extra greens to make it a burger salad for no extra charge. Whats not to love.
