    The cobb salad isn't as good as it used to be. Overcooked chicken and the portion has shrunk for the same price.

    Incredible open mic on Mondays starting at 8pm. The line up is talented, goes till late, and generally has a featured artist with a 30-45m show. Mileage there may vary... Eat a burger and listen up.
