I love this place!! This is the third time I have been here and I haven't had a bad meal yet. Its definitely diner food but good quality and tasty food.

Had the Ruben sandwich, they put only two slivers of meat, really cheaped out this time. Mother had the teriyaki chicken, it was mostly rice. Not the best value but maybe next time they will be better. Cheesecake was terrible, the strawberries were from a can, but in the picture they appear to be fresh.

Nice family-style restaurant that is extremely popular with the locals. Large menu w/lots to choose from & moderately priced too. Suggest you get there early or be prepared to wait (may try to call ahead to see how many tables are available.). I think they close a little early (8pm?) so check their hours before going as well. It was... More

The food was terrible. It was like eating hospital food but a lot worse. Everything was store bought, like the sauces and butters. I tried to order a meal for my son and noticed they had *kraft dinner* in the menu..the same kraft dinner you would buy at a grocery store. Nothing is made fresh there obviously and way overpriced.... More

( We were in the mood for cheesy and really enjoyed the Dated Motel Across the Road) And went across the road in the morning to the matching restaurant for breakfast... Standard diner fare, we were happy with the friendly service and basic coffee, eggs and bacon breakfast. A nice and simple start to the day :) Sometimes the simple... More
