The food was a good value, and the place was very close to the Best Western where I was staying. But it seemed that the chef really does not care about his food at all. The chicken was put on a bed of rice that was so cold it must have been taken out of the refrigerator and plopped straight... More

simple, but proper, and a good Americana menu - we were just there for breakfast, and it had great home-made fries with the basic servings, and good rye bread.... good service too...

I like little diners that specialize in getting the food to you, having the food be good and putting a smile on your face with a good price. Grover's delivered.

No frills family run cafe that does EXCELLENT affordable food. Hot, tasty and with a smile. Cooked breakfast including tea or coffee for under $6 - YES!!! Also their hot turkey sandwich is amazing. If you are expecting "fancy" decor, this is NOT the place. Basic trucker cafe style... for a VERY affordable price!!!

I can deal with the age of restaurants as long as they are maintained which this one was not. The food tasted like a TV dinner that had been warmed up. The atmosphere felt like... More
