I brought some clients to this place...these are hard-working construction guys and I knew, just KNEW they would appreciate this slightly upscaled version of good ol' home-cookin'. The food is not over-seasoned, but is soooo flavorful!! I wonder if some of these "diners" on UrbanSpoon, giving poor reviews on the food, might be smokers or used to chain restaurants where sodium is a prime and key ingredient in the foods being served? At any rate, the food is just good, plain and simple.
Our experience was a good one. Greeted by the hostess upon entering and seated immediately was a great start. It's a nice, big place with plenty of seating and a full-service bar. I ordered the prime-rib, mashed potatoes and delicious, steamed veggies. One client ordered the meat-loaf with the same sides as me, and the other client ordered a bacon cheeseburger with crispy french fries. They both absolutely LOVED the food as did I.
I also ordered the sweet potato tater tots and calamari. The calamari had cayenne pepper mixed in to the flour mixture...giving it just a slight kick. And the sweet potato tater tots were the best I've ever had.
