Good for travelers looking for a quick meal. Offerings are well-prepared and not over-cooked. I had nothing that was too sweet or overly salted.

A nice place and good service. A large menu of selections. We had the beef hot shot and the turkey and dressing and thought they were very good. We will eat at one of these again to try something else from all their selections.

Stopped by here based on the reviews Normally tripadv is spot on; as I trust it more than any other review group. But not on this one. I should've guessed by the small number of cars in the parking lot, that this isn't exactly "THE"...More
