Always good food at a great price! Sometimes gets a little jammed, but worth the wait! Would definitely recommend the Tex Mex Menu.

I've driven by this place for quite awhile and never stopped in. I then learned that this restaurant is part of the American Airlines Dining Club so it was worth it for me to give this place a try. My wife and I are diner meatloaf fans so it was the meatloaf we wanted to try. We also got a... More

I have tried their burger, grilled cheese, quesadilla and they are so greasy and soggy. They don't have great cooks, and the parking is a joke. I'd rather go to 3 brothers, exit 9 diner or go all way to putnam diner for real good classic diner food.

Yes - this is a diner - tons of food on your plate for a small amount of cash. I ordered the chicken and potatoes - got enough food to feed me and 2 of my kids. The stuffing was good, the potatoes were good, the chicken was great. Hubby had ribs and noodles which were both very tasty. Salads... More

Stop in here occasionally, it's clean and friendly. Food is what you expect at a decent Diner. Breakfast plates were ample, eggs cooked ok, bacon not so crisp. Omelette was decent, French toast. Syrup is usual commercial stuff.

This is a friendly, neighborhood type of diner. They offer Mexican specialties in addition to the standard diner fare. Our place setting included complementary macaroni salad. Prices were fair and portions were large. The food was good and the service friendly and prompt.
