Friendly staff smiling ear to ear. Food was good and reasonably priced. Have been there several times. Short wait but worth it.

it was good food but too much. Order from the little less menu if you don't want a lot, otherwise the food was fantastic and the service was super great

Big serving, friendly fast service but to me Sysco/IFH food service food. I always order corned beef hash and usually love it. This time I left about 3/4 on the plate. Bland shredded meat at best. Hash browns were an odd, egg noodle like shred. They might have been good if they were hot and crunchy, but sadly they were... More

We were visiting the area and following TA reviews decided to have lunch here. We actually visited between lunch and dinner hour so there were not many people there. You walk into the restaurant and your eyes are greeted by a yummy dessert cases of fruit pies (too bad we were too full to try one). We were warmly welcomed... More

We stopped in due to curfew --as we are currently under daylight only driving - and discovered a FanTastic restaurant ! Service is quick - the food is generously portioned and our waitstaff attentive!! Give it a go- I doubt you'd be unhappy here; and in my travels - I find this to be pleasantly rare and a pure delight!!!

I found this diner on trip advisor. And it's so good! I had the best breakfast. The portions are huge and everything is homemade; country cookin. I had pancakes, cubed red potatoes( hash browns), and a polish type sausage. Yum! Yum!

The sweet cream pancakes are wonderful. Staff is a little quirky with attitude but I love that. Breakfast all day. Portions are generous. I tried a sampler of breakfast deliciousness. Unfortunately it didn't include hash browns but I got them on the side and were perfection! This location in Goodyear can be easy to miss, right off a freeway exit,... More

Great service at the counter. Huge portions. Kitchen cranks out the orders faster than servers can deliver them. Omelet was perfectly executed and hash browns crispy as ordered. Eggs cooked perfectly with no brown edges. Biscuit a meal in itself. Yummy.
