This place is awesome. The waiting room is decorated like someone's livingroom! The menu has a wide variety and the prices are "not too shabby". They say a good sign of a good place is if the parking lot gets full. Well, this place falls into this category.
Reservations: Parties of 6 people or more made in advance for any day they are open. They do their best to seat reservations immediately. I recommend calling ahead, even if your party has 2 or more people.
Call after 4:30pm ON the evening you want to come in and they will put you on the list for your requested time. Once you check in at the time you requested, they do their best to set you within 30-40 minutes. The purpose of the call-ahead is to minimize your wait time. Without calling ahead, the wait time can be anywhere from 1.5 to 2.5 hours!
Favorite Dish: Everything!!
The Service is often prompt and courteous. The prices are Moderate-Medium range for
items ordered. The Interior has a blend of Large Ceiling to floor 4x8' windows set into attractive Wood panneling. There is also a Deli and Ice Cream Take Out Counter.
The ICE CREAM has a Rich Flavoring - Especially the Coffee and Chocolate flavors!
Favorite Dish: Cheezeburger Deluxe. This is a 1/3 Lb of Steak grilled Medium - Well Done. It is topped off with delicious Cheddar Cheeze. It also comes with a sizeable side of French Fries ,
plus pickle slices and often a piece of lettuce. I often order a cup of hot Coffee with my meal; and during warm weather I oder a Large Soda - Sprite or Pepsi.
The best ways to get to ATTLEBORO are by MBTA
Commuter rail train; and by Automobile.
The best way to get around is by Auto and the local
GATRA Buses. For Downtown region; walking gets you
It's all here, and all inside this mall of 3 floors. Godiva is here, too!! Sears, JCPenney and Filene's, too (all my favs)
The food court is on the 3rd floor, near the restrooms. You can't miss it. There's also a Merry-go-Round there, too!
What to buy: Anything you're looking for is sure to be here.
What to pay: Prices are "typical", but make sure you know your prices before you shop so you don't get ripped off.
