    I so love this place. I came here for my birthday dinner with a friend and I love this place. The atmosphere was great along with the food and service.

    Get ready for a specially made grilled cheese. Choose from tons of cheeses and toppings like sauerkraut, bacon and even spicy Cheetos. And don’t forget to pick up a cup of tomato soup for dunking. Read more

    Best Sunday brunch hands down. From the mashed potato bar to the taco bar to the grilled cheese station you can’t go wrong. They also have a whole room of standard breakfast fare. It is worth the $30!

    Pan-seared chicken with Parmesan cream sauce is to die for. Large portion- you can split it with someone. Also try the chocolate torte for dessert. Absolutely amazing!

    Granddaughter loves their Mac and Cheese but we always order an extra plate to cool it down from the bowl it comes in. And she loves the Birthday Cake for dessert

    Seared tuna salad is wonderful. Just a hint of wasabi and a sweet soy combo dressing. The tuna was light and VERY fresh! Must have again.

    The giant mural of the cars is a photo taken in the same space as Americana. It was taken in 1937 when the space was a car dealership.

    The hoisin BBQ is amazing, get a side with just about anything on the menu, especially if it has pineapple (or just spread on the grilled pineapple side)

    The photo on the wall was the taken just days before the famed "massacre" of 1937 Pope Leo IV had just declared sodomy legal. Outraged farmers stormed the local papal college killing 73 scribes inside

    Soup was amazing but curry was a bit disappointing (too heavy sauce but no spice/flavor). Nice atmosphere, great service, will come back!

    We must not be as big of "bombshells" as we thought. We have been moved to the bar stockroom.
