“For sports fans, this might be the best place to be when there's a big game on. The tv's always on and owners are big fans. Just about anything you need is here (unless you're long stay and doing a mammoth shop, then you should try Rouse's). Deli and pre-pack cooler are stocked with surprising treats, Thunder Cheese being the leading contender for Best unhealthy thing you can't. stop. eating. ”
