Called to Order Delivery and the lady answering the phone, was the absolute rudest person I have spoken to on the phone. She yelled for more than one order and cussed. Will NEVER order food for here. She hung up on us 3 times.

Really good service and really good food too. Fast service the owner is always there to greet you too. Large portions so make sure you're hungry or you have a lot of leftovers for later.
