    Don't bother. Completely average. Mediocre. Unworthy of your time and money.

    Extremely rude staff (don't ask for tips) doesn't care to inform you if you're waiting in the wrong line and make you go to the end of the order line and the register line that you already waited in.

    They have the best salads, but the absolute worst ordering process. A large steak salad and Greek feta is the way to go.

    There are three lines which move counter clockwise. One for salad, one for sandwiches, and one to pay. The sandwich line is in the middle and often much shorter.

    Make your own sandwich: sourdough, tri-tip steak, all toppings, Pluto's BBQ sauce (extra), garlic curly fries and a root beer on tap. You won't ever get anything else.

    It's iight. If you go, don't get the plain meat. It's dry.

    Always a solid bet- get the mixed greens salad with steak on top, cooked medium, toppings (tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers, corn, raisins/pineapple, pepperocini's) with the balsamic vinegar.

    Their salads are fairly large. I'd go with a small for one person or a large for two people.

    The sandwiches and other items are good, but get the salad. You won't regret it.
