What a great find … we ordered lunch to go and it was awesome. The grilled chicken sandwich and truffle fries. I’m a bit of a foodie and I loved the variety of flavors…so, so good!! I always say the bread/bun on sandwiches can make or break it and this was perfect. The owner is super friendly and we are sure to go back…a lot!! We love having this quality of food so close by.

…The grilled chicken sandwich was just as tasty. The chicken was nice and moist and not dry and the pickled onions added a really good flavor. Hoping they bring the garlic aioli dipping sauce from Flying Pig here for the shoe string fries! Looking forward to coming back to try some more items!

My wife thoroughly enjoyed her grilled chicken sandwich with the “healthier” side of salad. The service was both friendly and efficient, and we left very happy and very full!

We really liked that you get 4 sliders so you can share evenly and get 2 each , they were delish.

It’s a rare thing to feel amazing customer service I think…. So good job! I had buffalo fried chicken sliders and they were exceptional. Our food came out fast and we both loved it. Thank you!
