    It's not terrible, but it isn't the best! The best thing there is the orange chicken and rice. Their burgers are good sometimes, and the fries are the best. They have a nice area to eat and a coffee shop as well.

    The Beeps Cafe is pretty good. Prices are reasonable nothing to pricy. The cafe also has a variety of snacks and even a Starbucks! The cafe also offers free wifi and a charging station. Great place to hang out with friends.
