First time visit, good food, great waitperson

Breakfast was outstanding. Thank goodness I ordered the short stack of pancakes--I couldn't even finish them. Boysenberry syrup was the best and no one else has it. I had scrapple as well and it was done just right--crispy on the outside but moist in the middle. My husband had an omlette and he was... read more

Directly across the street from Queen City Airport you'll find this hidden gem, I had driven by it for years because I never had enough time to stop and enjoy a sit-down meal. Finally I did and it wasn't bad. The place was quite busy and the smells coming out of the kitchen made me more hungry, my meal was... More

Had a most terrific turkey Reuben sandwich, served with real fries and yummy slaw. I tried to save room for their cake, but just couldn't fit it in. Husband said his cheese burger was great, but would have preferred fries over chips. Fries are an up charge with the burger. It seemed our server felt she was doing us a... More

I have visited this diner a couple of times. The food has always been good but the service is horrible. Our female waitress couldn't even make eye contact or smile. What appeared to be the owner was to busy talking to employees or on the phone. There is a young very nice Hispanic waiter who does go above and beyond.... More

I always enjoyed this diner. My latest trip there the food was good as usual. The service was slow and the waitress seemed more interested in talking to coworkers than serving her customers. The cashier had no clue on how to operate the the register. I looked at the clock and is 10:45 when we got to the register with... More

If you are looking for a quick bite and crave a homestyle burger this is the place! They also have good soups and a small salad bar. Great value and friendly service.
