Great breakfast

Some of the best pancakes I have ever had. Huge portions at a reasonable price. We are here twice and got the breakfast both times.

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.

Love this place. Go all the time. Know the staff and managers. It's like being at my grandmothers for breakfast. Large portions and good comfort food.

We have been twice - once for breakfast and once for lunch. Busy both times but good food and average service. Plenty on the plate - if you're not a big eater ask about lighter portions. It was nothing fancy, but I would go back.

I was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. I was just expecting run of the mill food. But everything was terrific.
