This is so sad to hear, your Korean BBQ chicken sandwich kept our household coming back! You guys will truly be missed ,not just because of the food, but especially since you became a part of the Jenison community and another great small business at the Baldwin Plaza!

Chelsea comments,

I wish you guys could have given the community a heads up so we could have given you a proper goodbye. Thank you for being such a staple for our family the last couple years. Your staff was always so welcoming and the food was AMAZING.

The owners also own Mill Creek Tavern in Comstock Park, which remains open. Anyone with gift cards can use them at Mill Creek Tavern or can get a refund, if able to provide a receipt.
