The food is usually served with a healthy amount of steak cut fries on the side and the quality is very good for the food and relatively quick to receive your order. There is also a good choice of beverages aside from the sodas. Beer and wine is served there and at “happy hour” you can receive discounts on a pitcher of beer. There is also a lunch special for items on Monday thru Friday.
