We had a business dinner here for which we had 11 people. The hostesses set it up and were very flexible with us when we arrived and were not sure of the final count. Our server was a young man who handled the large table...More

Came in quickly for lunch to grab some of the new lasagna nachos. They were fantastic. I got served quickly and my nachos came out a few minutes later. Great place for a quick lunch.
