A great spot for dinner! Reasonably priced for great Italian food and a recently re-constructed building. They host private parties and also have take-out. There are a few locations, but this one is by far my favorite!

They have an outstanding menu with breakfast, lunch, and dinner items served all day. I'm hooked on the Shrimp & Grits! The funny part is, I'm not a huge fan of either shrimp or grits, but this place makes them just right. The grits are fried in a patty and the patties are then stacked. The shrimp are served along side the grits and everything is covered in a sausage gravy. It is my go-to meal every time I visit.

This is a chain, but they only do one thing and they do it right -- burgers! Hand made patties and fresh cut french fries.... you only need a small order of fries for two people...trust me, they pile them on. And you know they are fresh because they store the bags of potatoes all over the front of the restaurant!

Our guests love this place! My wife & I had dinner here and it was outstanding! This is a small restaurant (I assume it is family owned), so it is not "fast food" but it is worth the wait. The dishes are clearly made to order and taste like home cooking! We enjoyed a Beef Empanada and a Tamal Cubano for an appetizer. She had the Bistec de Palomilla Encebollado for her entree and I had the Ropa Vieja. Both were delicious! We paired everything with pitcher of Sangria and topped it off with Cuban Flan for dessert. Our server, China, was absolutely delightful! We couldn't have asked for more.

This is a great Chinese restaurant. The decor is a bit dated, but the food is great. They also delivery for a very modest fee through the Beyond Menu app. We love the egg foo yung, egg rolls, lo mein, and cashew chicken.

If you are interested in seeing some amazing military items, you have to stop here. The open hours can be a bit fluid since the owner is also an appraiser and buyer, so he sometimes has to shut down to travel to see a collection. But if you are in town, it is worth trying to stop by if you have any interest in military history. Although it is a store, it truly is a museum for those who take the time to look around at everything.
