Nice, clean, spacious 1.5 years new restaurant site. Good, friendly, afforable fresh food counter service. Vegan options, including tortilla soup.
Not a silent dedicated chess space. Please honor games in progress by not analyzing yours when done. It always gets louder than intended.
DirectionsExit 146 west off I25
0.2 miles right on Hilton Pkwy if not sooner if you see front entrance. This is where Subway used to be across from Villiage Inn and Quality Inn where North Gate Chess has had events in past. Patronize the restaurant and we might be able to make this or similar a semi-regular get together. Restaurant chess at its finest.
