This is a great improvment! I would rather pay $8 for a steak burrito than $8 for a jumbo hotdog!

Actually, the United States post office considers that location as being in Shorewood. So it's not marketing, it is just actually Shorewood. :)

I went to this restaurant last night for the first and last time. I was traveling for business and thought this would be a good place to eat. I waited for between 10 and 15 minutes before a waiter came to my table. There were several wait staff who passed my table, but nobody looked at me or smiled...nothing. The food was mediocre at best! It was a disappointing experience to say the least.
