    Fresh food (burgers are da bomb!!!), good service, moderately expensive when you order drinks (spiced apple cider!) and dessert (key lime pie!)!

    The BBQ Chicken sandwich is great. And the place is very kid friendly, including the staff.

    Note the customized pizzas on last page of menu. They're perfect size for one person and various combos I've had have all been terrific. Service here has always been great, by the way.
