    Only place I've ever worked where it truly feels like a family atmosphere. The food is good, I never tire of it.

    You all do a great job, I know it's a tough job being responsible for a restaurant.

    Pros

    First year was great because the I loved the boss and the employees. Everyone that worked there was really nice and it's a nice atmosphere to be around

    Cons

    Second year the boss was also mean and I hated it. Still loved the employees but the boss had it out for me for some reason so it literally sucked. Hope he's fired by now

    Advice to Management

    Only hire cool bosses otherwise all your good emplyeees will leave and then no one will want to come to the restaurant
