We have been to this location many times. Double nickel salad always good. I like the Joe’s Regular wings, but today they were especially good.

I absolutely love the chicken fingers. The french fries are good, nice and crispy. The only thing I miss is real sweet tea! I just order water or Diet Coke. But best of all ——- is or strawberry shortcake! Simply amazing!!!

Went for happy hour and quiet surprised of the choices. Staff friendly and helpful. Food was good and hot, good drinks. Menu looks like it had quite a choice of items, and a nice kid's menu.
