    I ordered the banana waffles with ice cream and chocolate sauce. The waffles totally hit the spot. I ate everything. The delivery was very fast. I will order from here again.

    Always quick and fresh. They didn't have a sandwich I ordered after 5pm and gave me a more expensive item without question. Always delicious!!

    Prompt delivery. Freshest food. Note, the menu needs to be updated. Cod is no longer available and you will receive catfish. Wish I'd known that before ordering for a kosher friend. I'd recommend visiting this place too as they have great beer specials and the service is always spectacular. The manager is super friendly and welcomes me as if he knows me.
