The food is good and the location is convenient. The prices are a bit high and the service can be slow. They seems to have two servers no matter how busy they are. Everyone is super sweet.

Customized orders, healthy choices, awesome service. Daily specials offer variety, but regular menu has good choices: salads (can add chicken etc), good burgers, veggies, and now beer or wine!
