Our team is a very select team, and quite difficult to get on. To find a young team who stays off their cell phones while at work, who works extremely hard and efficiently, who work to make every single plate Instagrammable, and who are super friendly with customers is almost impossible...but we found it! To top it off each team MUST believe in giving back to the community and helping others.
We are not perfect, but we hire good humans with old school work ethic, and who simply love to hand over delicious food.

Support our Troops
You may notice a military theme among us. We believe in supporting those that work hard to keep us safe! These people put their lives and families on the front line, and often go unappreciated. We give back to the military, specifically our veterans and and those in need through the Legion and the MFRC. We certainly support our troops, and are very thankful for their efforts.
