Decent food and pretty quick

This is a typical diner. Good solid breakfast food with the normal choices. Good solid lunch food. I've tended towards the horseshoe lately and I enjoy it. Price is in range and food's good.

The restuarant was in the style of a 50's cafe, service was good and the cook did an excellent job with my meals

Our daughter is at Illinois state University and goes here often. Whilst we were visiting her last week we went here a lot and were not disappointed. Nice friendly staff, good value food and tasty coffee too with regular refills. Loved the cookie milkshakes, hotdogs &chilli fries and the variety of breakfasts were a real treat. I had some great...

Great decent diner food. Open 24hrs. They have specials and the prices are cheap. It has that 50's / Maid-Rite look to it. I had the Mexican omlette which was packed and delicious. The place has the red and white look on the inside with the ISU Redbird on the wall. Great place.

Ate here after our tour at ISU. Food was tasty and hot and the shakes and pie were wonderful. Service was a little slow but there was only one waitress and she was very friendly. Nothing fancy but typical diner fare at a really fair price.

This is right in the middle of ISU's campus so the location is exceptional but the food is average. Probably good at 2am when you are closing down the bars.

Dirty atmosphere, microwaved biscuits and eggs with cheese SAUCE does NOT make for a good breakfast. It was fun to be in a diner atmosphere complete with a breakfast counter. It was not as fun to be faced with a butt crack while we ate. Staff was friendly but clueless. This corner location and well-lit environment could be so much... More
