While they specialize in food to go, you can join them for lunch in. They will have a small seating area where you can dine or just wait while they prepare your individual or family style dinner to talk home and just re-heat later!

The carry-out menu is available for lunch and dinner Monday- Friday 11:30-6:00 (other arrangements may be made to accommodate orders when possible)
