Good variety for breakfast. Ordered a side of bacon and ended up with 8 pieces as 4 came with the meal. If you eat there later in the day you have to have a ice cream shake. Super service and good prices.

Sorry to hear you are lactose intolerant! We are starting to look into our dairy free options as that is becoming a more prevalent concern. Also we will be looking into why the waitress was not being as attentive as usual. Thank you.
