    Quite possibly the best Grilked Ham and Cheese Sammy you will have in your entire life. Add Kallas Mustard and a beer and you have perfection!! Great bar as well!

    Authentic cheese curds must be fresh! If they don't squeak when you bite, then they are not fresh! Malcore's are usually great.
