Service was prompt, food followed quickly, it matched the advance advertising, hours go (fairly) late, the prices were modest, and breakfast is available all day. What's not to like?

I've been here a few times over the years, especially since the college inn closed. Basically, it is just disgusting. I suppose that if you are a college kid, and don't care about the food -- this place is good for you. But, otherwise, it...More
