Had a terrible meal. I got a chicken breast sandwich - it was maximum 3oz chicken, which was dry, tough and tasteless on a cold (refrigerated) bun. Should have sent it back, but didn't want to have to wait another half hour for a replacement...More

While this establishment is in dire need of structural and cosmetic updates it is always a good time. Even though they are understaffed, the staff that is there is always friendly. Part of the draw of this place is the clientele. We've rarely walked away...More

You take a 7 mile drive down a scenic farm country valley road and you come to one of the most nondescript looking places for a drinking/dining establishment you can imagine, most certainly nondescript for you if your tastes run the range from Applebees, to...More
