Houston Press' Description

Unstinting applications of a good, snowy mayonnaise make this Danish hole-in-the-wall's old-fashioned chicken and potato salads among the very best in town. Other treats: corned beef and Swiss on rye with a pale, homemade liver pté; devastating Danish butter cookies by the sack. Ixnay on the cheesecake. Take out, unless you enjoy closetlike quarters.

    Ham on whole wheat!
