    I hope they’re back in business soon. Love their food and the people are great! And, hate to say it, but a deep cleaning will do them good! I hope they take advantage of the down time to spruce up the place a little.

        Don’t let the “character” of the place fool you. Phil is a top-notch chef and the food is really good.

        Some of the best food can be found in dingy little restaurants, especially for this kind of food. NuttyBuddy is right, the food can’t be beat, the service is wonderfully friendly, and the prices are good. Hope they are back in business soon, and I don’t care HOW they look.
