It's a fun diner with all the decor to go along with the retro feel of the building (trailer?). The food is standard diner fare. It's just very busy and crowded and loud. I guess that's a testament to the food, though. Breakfast there is great. Worth waiting if it's not too cold out (because you'll likely have to stand... More

We were in Athens for lunch at noon on a Friday. While busy, there was not a wait in large part because of the hustle shown by the waitresses. They were not only taking the orders, serving the food but also busing the tables. The food is very good and reasonable. I would definitely stop at this diner again!

We stopped to eat here for lunch on a road trip to West Virginia. I had no idea it was right smack in the middle of a busy college bar street! It made for fun people watching as it was homecoming weekend for the university and everyone was out partying. The diner itself is very cool. I love all the... More

What a great diner! Location is within walking distance of the campus. The diner is decorated like a 50's era diner. The food was good and the prices were very reasonable. Will definitely be back!

Good selection of dinners, lunches, and breakfasts. It's a very nostalgic ambiance. Fun place to hang out with friends and family

Went to visit my daughter for parents weekend. The food was good, not great, but the portions were plentiful. The hamburger and fries and the Rachel sandwich were both very good. Service was ok; the server asked if we needed anything and I said silverware would be a nice touch. The wait staff are probably college students, so I didn't... More

This is a classic diner in the middle of Uptown Athens. I try to eat breakfast here at least once every time I'm in Athens. The food is delicious, service is fast and friendly. I love the atmosphere, both inside and out. They also have some of the best milkshakes I've ever had! The prices are very reasonable, and the... More

Loved the atmosphere. The railcar 50's diner feel was fun. The server was nice but not overly attentive. The food was average diner fare but the chicken was rubbery. I believe it had been microwaved probably more than once. I seriously could not bite through it and it had the texture of gristle. To their credit, I complained and they... More

Casa was packed on a Sunday morn so we walked up to the diner. Huevos locos, excellent; eggs benedict, very good; frittata, terrific. My kid scarfed down his kid meal pancakes and ordered a second batch. You might think about getting the adult cakes. The hash browns are like I like them--crispy. Atmosphere is retro. Unfortunately they were short staffed... More
