  • Great food, but pricey.
  • Amazing food but it's pricey!
  • Get there before 3PM - they close several of the stations down at 3 and only have a limited menu from 3 to 5.
  • Buffalo chili is really good but a has a real good kick to it. Also, get the honey fry bread. It's yummers!
  • Get the clam pie! Omg.
  • Ask for samples!! With so many cool things to choose from it helps!
  • Food is pretty good, but NOT moderately cheap. Whoever said that is nuts. Good food...but not worth the price.
  • Fantastique!
