Open for breakfast and lunch on ​Columbus Day - 7am -2pm

In the restaurant business, dining fads come and go but tradition will always win out in the end. Our tradition stems from the family atmosphere in which we were raised - this translates to satisfying portions, quality ingredients, and a ton of joyful noise from a happy crowd (and a great playlist).

We have the best food around and an atmosphere to match. Try us and you'll be convinced! Our recipes are authentic and time-tested. The ingredients are always fresh. The result? A menu that bursts with flavor.
