Do they have their own checked bug-free produce?
Their checked produce is the same as Gourmet Glatt

Noooooo
Was nothing fancy but I loved going there for a quick, relatively cheap meal.
When did they close down?

Nah, most of those are loud, fast-food places. Ahuva's grill maybe is comparable maybe, although the one time I went, I did not like it and haven't been back since. Traditions is good but a little more pricey (and often loud). Skewers I never tried.
I guess 2 big things that Hapinah brought to the table was that it was always empty (so it was on the quite side) and I always used a Groupon deal!

Empty and quiet = going out of business

I find that Groupon coupons also means that the store is not doing so well
