I need to stop going here so frequently so I still like it a month from now. This has been put in the regular rotation for lunch destinations and it is always very popular. The space is not the largest eatery and one of those Goldilock’s “just right” sized in busyness vs. overwhelmed for the staff. The chefs are busy but not overworked and the two servers and manager they have are fast and polite. They have about 10 booths and a few tables in the back they can push together for the occasional large group. Also, on the other side of the wall closest to the kitchen are a few scattered high tops.
I have not taken in the night life here yet so this is completely based off of lunch.
- I went here a few times over the past few weeks. The stand out was a very surprising Tuna Melt last Friday. It was a special and almost overlooked for a salad, yay Meatless Fridays. But when I asked what it was the server explained that it was a tuna steak on… I politely interrupted and said I would have that as my vision of a Tuna Melt was a scoop of Tuna-fish Salad on toast. I lucked out, it was beyond good. The tuna was cooked to order and I went with it a little more cooked rather than the seared and pink due to the fact that the raw(ish) tuna and the Swiss that would be cohabitating with it did not really seem appetizing to me. From the group that ate, the burgers are good, the salads are good. It seems like its a decent spot to hit up for lunch and it is.
- They have a few daily specials that are just as good if not better than the normal menu.
- They have oranges for my Sweet Tea.
- The servers are very fast, I think the one has a few cups of coffee before the rush, she flys back and forth down the aisle.
- The food is consistently good.
- The manager actually works. This may seem normal but you would be surprised. She takes empty plates and refills drinks when its busy.
- There is no real pedestrian cross walk from the parking lot rows to the stores in this area. You have to take your life in your hands, I mean trust the VA drivers. not their fault, but their problem.
- Nope nuttin bad.
