The food is very good. Excellent corn beef. Bill carves and piles your sandwich high. His rye bread is not bad. You get a full plate of fresh food for a very reasonable price.

Pleasant, friendly, hard-working people who appreciate customers. Couple that with properly prepared, and tasty food .... served in an amount like your Mother would. The overall appearance presented to customers is one of immaculate cleanliness. .... including the rest rooms. We were part of the noon-time flow of customers, which Bill and staff handled smoothly and professionally. As you enter... More
