    I keep thinking I'll try something other than the eggs sardou for breakfast, but then it's time to order and i get them again. I love them and i can't give them up.

    I thought the country steak was a country fried steak. I was wrong. It was too thin and too well done.

    Food was blah and the Bloody Mary had giant chunks of peppercorn rendering it undrinkable. Been here twice but never again.
