Help us Make People Happy

Lots of places can offer you a job, but few can offer you an opportunity to make great money while you make other people happy.  We offer very competitive rates, benefits and a local owner who cares.  But most importantly we want you to be happy and spread that to our guests.



This is a full-time position that requires leadership and line cooking skills, and experience.  Quality of experience is more valuable than quantity.  Help our current team of 22 kitchen and food prep staff continue to make people happy.
