This is a great little stop for lunch. They make a great Reuben among other things. The staff is friendly and competent. This is an order at the counter and grab your own drink kind of place.

The operating hours have changed. Be sure to check before making plans. New owners. Thus, changes. Most employees are friendly. Food, a unique flavor. Meatloaf has a flavor I'm not familiar with. Why anyone would think opening a can of 'baked beans', pork and beans'...More
