Everything is great! They have everything from tacos to doughnuts and everything in between. On Tuesdays, tacos are .99 cents and on Wednesday wings are discounted as well. I enjoy the curly fries and egg white salad. It is a great place to eat lunch or to pick up for dinner. Sometimes the lines are long but it is worth... More

I'm not from the area, but was looking for a reasonable place to take my family for breakfast. Saw the great reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. I was more than amazed at the wonderful selection and the great prices. You order at the counter and the bring your food to you. I ordered an Omletes... More

Ordered a Ruben. The sour krout and meat were cold so they COOKED them AGAIN together on a dirty griddle. NOTHING like a Ruben from a good deli. Good delis have undercooked corned beef in a warmer, as same with sour krout. No COOKING them together on a dirty griddle. Smells and tastes rotten. Also, there were 3 people working... More

Great soups, sandwiches, omelettes, bagels (and Mexican specialties). There is something for everyone here and the service is great! Great for brunch, lunch or a lite snack. The place is small and get really crowded on the weekends though so its best to go at off hours on the weekends.

Great little spot! Order at the counter, take a number and food will be brought to your table. Food is good! Menu is extensive and reasonably priced. I usually go for breakfast and choices range from Huevosla La Mexicana to lox & bagels. Yes, you can get more traditional French toast and scrambled eggs too. I go with friends and... More

Food was good, served nicely. Noticed lots of locals. Friends in the area brought us here. Service was pleasant. Bagels are good. We were there for breakfast. My husband and i shared a meat lover's omelet. More then enough for two. My bagel was tasty.

This is not a fancy place, and the food is not gourmet, but it's that comfortable kind of place you can go a few times a week. Kind of like going to Mom's. The menu is huge - if you can't find something you want to eat here, you're simply not hungry. You can order just a bagel or a... More
