We ate here for the first time tonight. My husband had the Tortellini Cordon Bleu. He does not normally eat pasta but after hearing rave reviews from his best friend and knowing that I love pasta, we decided to give it a try. He cannot stop talking about how wonderful it was. My daughter and I both tried it and thought it was great as well. My daughter tried the Mac & Cheese. She is seven and said it is the best that she has ever had. My husband and I swiped a few bites and had to agree that it is fabulous! I had the 5 layer Lasagne, and it was excellent. I am not a huge fan of Italian Seasoning but this was seasoned perfectly, not too much, just enough. Let's talk portion size...we all have leftovers for at least one more meal. My daughter could probably eat off of hers for a week. We just may have to help her with that. ;~P While I have the agree that their packaging does leave a little to be desired, I understand constraints, and I would hate to see their prices skyrocket to accommodate better packaging. It would be awesome if they got out of the gas station, but in a town where real estate can be costly, it is understandable that they would want to get a firm start prior to getting into a costly lease. Anyway, Food is fabulous, portion size is incredible. Prices are fair. We will be back...again...and again.
