Stopped in for lunch while working in area. Good menu selections. Ordered the chicken stir-fry. Everything was good. Baked potato was huge! Didn't take long and service was excellent. Will try them again when in area.

Get the baked potato with Cyclone sour cream. You will never want another potato without it. AND it is a SECRET recipe. A recipe guarded for decades. It IS that good.
