Pros: Restaurant Review Petro Pennsylvania Carlisle

everything on the hot

went to go get our salads, one of the workers was refilling the kettles
with salad components.

of lettuce (probably Romaine, as it did not look like Iceberg), cherry
tomatoes, carrot sticks, cauliflower florets, cucumber slices, diced
hard boiled egg and shredded cheddar cheese.
