Dropped in last week for a quick bite. Old diner style, with hearty servings at a great value. Will have to drop in again next time we are passing through

We asked a local where to eat in Dryden and this was his number 3 choice. It looks a bit grim from the outside but that is not always a good indicator of the restaurant.

This place is cheap, has 70s diner decor, but the diner food is plentiful and good for a twice a year treat! The poutine is delicious and you can eat until you burst for under 10 bucks at this place! But if you are looking for the uber clean place, this is not it. Service is great, price is cheap,... More
