Our Story

We have been family owned since1982, when we began our dream of the Once Upon Family of Restaurants, We made several promises ... We dedicated ourselves to providing clean and inviting atmospheres with pleasant and efficient service where you always see the same friendly faces - a place where every customer would feel at home. We also dedicated ourselves to providing food which is not only delicious, but mouthwatering and addicting. We offer healthy, authentic food that's prepared right before your eyes. Our food is so delicious that it speaks for itself and makes you want to come back.

Very well organised and convenient restaurant. They offer large portions and for fair prices. We enjoyed the menu a lot and the staff were super affable and chatty. Will definitely recommend this restaurant.

I have been eating here my whole life. Every time the food is great, and the staff is very friendly! Last night I finally decided to try the Mexican food. We tried the carne asada a la mexicana and the chicken fajitas. Both were DELICIOUS!

I go to this great spot quite a bit! This is the best place to pass a nice evening. I visit this place routinely. The cooking is excellent, the workers are helpful and the charge is decent. I enjoy eating in this place over a good dinner.

This is by far the BEST bagel / coffee shop I’ve ever been to. I got the Asiago bagel with chive cream cheese and it was delicious. We are from out of state so I have only been here twice but I soooo wish we had one closer.
