Homely and warm hospitality

You can count on friendly greeting and recommendations the moment you step into this restaurant serving comfort food in a relaxing, casual ambience devoid of pretences. In fact, the entire place screams "homely-ness" with a very authentic American touch.

It took some time for me to choose what to eat. On top of that, their menus contained lengthy, wordy descriptions and no pictures, therefore I had to use my imagination when reading the fine prints. It would be good for them to have a less-wordy menu with some photographs for reference.

We started the meal with the Gumbo (soup) consisting of sausage slices, chicken and lots of black pepper. I have heard of it but never tried it, so when I saw this restaurant serving it, I knew I had to have it. The first spoonful was a piping hot, rich, thick mouthful of spicy goodness - yes, the peppery taste was redolent. The few grains of tiny white rice mixed in added a touch of texture to the delicious soup dish.

For mains, we had burgers. The Beau had the Big Bern's Burger with Cheese - thankful that it was not a humongous American serving. This is a rather thick burger consisting of a minced-meat patty, lettuce, tomato slices, onion strips and thick layer of melted cheese atop, served between burger bread of course. The first few bites were delicious, especially the heavily-flavored beef patty clasped with crispy vegetables. However, the patty was very salty, I had to consume lots of water and munch on bread / vegetables to neutralize the taste.

Happen to chance upon this restaurant when I was running errands nearby. There is only 2 - 3 table occupied when I went there for lunch around 12PM.

I was seated at a corner next to their kitchen. The menu is interesting with the history but lengthy in words, you can take your time to read if you have the time.

I ordered a 1/2 portion Fish & Chip Set Lunch and it only cost me $8.60(with Svc Charge). The restaurant does offer 1/2 portion set meal for small eater. It comes with soup and drinks, and they are quite generous with their serving.

I have to mention their service staff. Their service staff is real good. They will give you suggestion and always with a smile on their face, i like their working attitude. Definitely will visit again!!!
