This place gives a whole new meaning to "neighborhood spot." The staff is super friendly – "we're just a happy bunch of people here," says the owner – and about 90% of the customers are regulars. Expect that they'll know your name on your second visit.
Four or five daily specials accompany the menu that's mainly American fare (think chicken, ribs and burgers) with an emphasis on freshness. Everything's housemade including the soup, a local favorite.
