This place is by far one of the best in Monroe. The staff is awesome. The owners are very friendly. The food is off the hook! Try the grilled pork chops and say hi to Jimmy!

This a solid meat and three type restaurant that does many things well. Good salads, soups, sandwiches, burgers and even good fried fish. Excellent service, nice atmosphere and clean. A solid choice for lunch any time.

We use to go here more often. It is a hit or miss on what is good or not. I would say it is at best average.
