I hate to write negative reviews, but this was a really bad experience. The food was awful. I ordered the chicken with pasta, which came with about three very small, gristly pieces of chicken and two slices of "Parmesan toast." The bread was cold, flabby,...More

Great place to grab a quick sandwich/salad/hot meal. Order at the counter and the staff will bring the food to your table. My biggest complaint is the uncomfortable chairs.

Just off the interstate in a large retail complex, order at counter and food is brought out. We had soup/salad combo and a turkey club. Good portions price was reasonable. A little slow on the service. Would stop again. Part of a restaurant chain.
