They are known for their reubens but the price is too steep. Over 11 dollars for a sandwich and a tiny bag of chips I didn't even want.More

Decided to try this place bc reviews were decent and prices seemed reasonable. Although the Reuben sandwich I had was tasty, it wasn't worth it as prices on the menu listed in the app are actually 26% higher now! Would've passed had I known this,...More
