Kabob - Je Rotisserie & Grill Great place, service was awesome, the sides and salads were great, and the Meat Shwarma was incredible. I've travelled to the middle east on several occasions, and this brought back great memories.
Angela's Italian Restaurant Sicilian special is huge and delish. Try this. Or anything on the menu. Great Italian. I think it's the sauce.
SunRiseĀ® Corn beef hash is delicious here!!
