This is by far one of the worst restaurants in the area. Food us greasy as hell, bland and just thrown on a plate. Service is ok, but the place is not a place to enjoy a meal if you are not close to home...More

3rd time. Lasagna is huge and the best. Blueberry pie hits the spot. Veggie choices are plenty - egg or Western (no ham) sandwich are yummy. Friendly staff.
