The BEST fried chicken in town. Seriously. We keep coming back, and it's always consistent. I love the hometown approach. The delicious, but unpretentious food. Friendly service. Great for kids. My girls love the platter the kids meal comes on with the separate compartments! So fun.

Very good. We had the fried potatoes (French fries) as an appetizer. The sauces were delicious. Everyone was getting the potatoes. The fried chicken was good. The meatloaf was good. The ambiance normally would not be that good but the snow falling outside the huge windows was a really cool scene. The service was the best part. Attentive, quick, in rhythm. A good experience. $19 for meatloaf... a little pricey. We recommend going here. Next time, it’s the double burger for me.

Sunday evening dinner before the movie; arrived early before reservation time and was promptly seated early. Food arrived quickly, was hot and excellent. Bit of a lag in attention between the meal and dessert. Always a great place to eat.

I keep going back hoping it will be good but they always seem to disappoint. I really think it's time for me to just give up. This particular day, it literally felt like we were eating cafeteria food. The chicken salad was so bland. I'm not sure consistency exists here because things never taste the same. They did a play on a fast food burger that made the fast food burger look more appealing. The water was warm and just... gross. Once I asked for chicken on my kale salad and they served me a kale salad with a whole breast, bones and all, on top. Another time I went to sit at the bar when they asked me if I could wait at the front because they had reserved the bar for someone else... but agreed when I said I thought it was first come, first serve. I left that night, and should have never returned. The service has never been good. I mean, I literally do not know where they find their employees. I love Volt, so I just don't understand how Family Meal is just so, so sad.

Really pleased to see Huevos Rancheros back on the brunch menu, and this updated version is even better than the original one, substituting corn meal fritters for the tortilla.
