Whenever we go in, we seem to have the place to ourselves, which is just fine for me! We like to sit in a far corner and play dice while we eat, and they never say anything to us. Ambiance is almost cafeteria. Food is always fairly quick, very hot, good quality and great taste. Menu is sufficient, though not extensive. All the basics are there. Over all, I wouldn t call it romantic or impressive, but, then, what in Joplin, MO is? This is definitely in Joplin s top 2%. The food is great, the people are nice, the prices are fair. I would absolutely recommend this to friends and family.
