My uncle took us here while we were visiting from Arkansas and it was a nice place for lunch. Hubby and I both had the lamb and beef wrap. The meats are ground and mixed, cooked with very good seasoning although we are not big...More

It is a fine restaurant but you can have a good dinner under 20 dollars too. The environment is nice and quiet.

Don't bother. They claim to take reservations, but don't in fact. Called and the person rudely told me they only take reservations for large parties. It's crowded and they're too busy.
