The number one reason to come here is the pizookie. Sure, it’s something that I can easily make at home, but I’m way too lazy. It came out in a fairly large (maybe 5-6 inches in diameter) metal dish. In it, a piping hot, moist and chewy chocolate chip cookie at least a quarter inch thick and topped with two scoops of vanilla ice cream. It’s simple but when you combine two classics like cookies and ice cream it’s a sure fire way to make me drool. It’s large enough for three people to share, but my son and I managed to devour it quickly between the two of us.

The other food is pretty standard. They’ve got a big menu that’ll make you think you’re at the Cheesecake Factory. Full of items not high in quality of preparation or ingredients, but large enough to appease any hearty appetite.

The pot roast sandwich may not be good for the heart, but it’s good for the soul — slices of beef on top of toasted garlic bread. If that wasn’t enough they top it off with mashed potatoes and gravy. Some random veggies on the side might fool others into believing it’s healthier than it is. The wife went with a classic burger. Standard fare, but it hit the spot.

The place is great for families. It’s loud enough to drown out the sounds of restless toddlers and plenty of tv’s to distract you from the average food and service. The kid’s menu is full of all the usual stuff — chicken tenders, grilled cheese, burgers, etc. So, chances are there’s something for even the pickiest eater.
