Not only did we like the meals we ordered, we liked the service, which was fast and very friendly,   In fact, it was Home Town Friendly.  We felt right at home!   And then, there’s the pie!    After our satisfying meals, we had to say no to the pie.   That means, we’ll be back, and probably for more than one or two pieces.  So many choices!
