Best BLT!

Have you ever had a BLT in a restaurant? Usually 2 or 3 slices of bacon. I got a BLT that was delicous, bacon not to crisp but not limp either. I had to keep picking up the bacon that would fall out of the sandwich. Order it and you will not be disappointed. I am spanish and I have... read more

Not much to look at but a excellent dining experience was in store for me this morning. My breakfast was extraordinary and that is unusual for a morning meal. I had corn beef hash, two perfect over-medium eggs, wheat toast, baked apples, sliced tomatoes and coffee. All were wonderful. Very busy place and the staff was keeping everyone happy. Look... More

Stopped here for lunch and had to wait a couple minutes for an inside seat. What they say about busy places is true. The food, service and atmosphere were all first rate. I had a half Cuban sandwich and the Spanish bean soup. I have to say the Cuban sandwich was the best one I've ever had. Had to have... More

Have tried this restaurant many times. The fried chicken is great and so is the pie! The staff is ok! Things are just not as good as they once were. But I still eat there for the "home cooked type" meals!

Heard good things & thought we'd try it. Not the best experience. Our waitress was nice but totally unorganized. Had to sit out in the smokers room, yuk!!! Food was good but not great. Don't think we are going back.

Had dinner here with my honey, and it seemed too good to be true. Terrific fried chicken just like Mama used to make. The kind I don't have time or energy for these days. Service, food and location all wonderful. Friends told me this is their favorite breakfast place, but I think the dinner is what brings me back.
