I can get here (about a block away), get my food, and get back to my desk in 10-15 minutes even when the place is totally packed full. Wonderful variety of food (specials, rotisserie chicken, soups, sandwiches, salad bars, pastries, and different hot casserole-type dishes every day), it's fully staffed by awesome people so the line moves really fast.
And if nothing else, I'm honestly impressed by their service. Once they accidentally messed up my order, and insisted on giving me a free cookie even after I told them it wasn't a problem and I didn't mind waiting at all.
This is one of the best places to get lunch around the square if you work near here.

Be warned, the Mexican themed catered lunch featured chicken which was old, included skin, bones and was devoid of flavor. The tortillas had a past due use-by date.

A co-worker told me how great their Thursday's Special cheese burger (on a pretzel bun) was, so I tried it and...WOW. I really think it's one of the best kept secret burgers in Madison, if not one of the best. The burger tastes fresh, the patty is moist and the pretzel bun is perfectly soft. They got proportions right. Note that the burger only comes with the patty, meat, cheese, and grilled onions and you can add mayo/ketchup/mustard to it. The workers are good people and treat their customers well. Last week I ordered a rotisserie chicken meal which came with a small side of salad. Not knowing that it was supposed to be a small side, I filled up half of my to-go box with salad and while both workers knew I wasn't supposed to fill it way up, they didn't say anything to make me feel bad about it. Great people (of course i won't do it again)! Back to the burger, I've tried many top rated burgers in Madison: Old Fashioned, Babes, Tony Franks, Weary Travelor, Nitty Gritty, Dotty Dumplings, DLUX, Great Dane, Granite City, and this one is highly recommended.
