The service and food were good . However if you use the parking lot next to the restaurant pay close attention to the time so your vehicle does not get towed

We went here based on other TA reviews. Maybe it was a bad day or Chef was sick or something else went wrong. The staff were not interested, the food was ordinary at best, and the general cleanliness was dreadful. There were very few other...More

I agree with most people here, they are very friendly and I'm sure would be happy to accommodate a plain steak or pork chops.
