Don't look in the back

I really like the food here, especially the milkshakes in a variety of strange exotic flavors. But don't look where the food comes from.

The food here was excellent and you can get the entire menu at any time! Delicious home fries, and I had the pork tenderloin, which was excellent. Great for small groups or alone, definitely a good diner for good food.

Had breakfast here, and service was good,, sweet potato pancakes were fine, but nothing special. I'd eat here again.

The "Pie Shakes" are to die for. The service is quick and the ambiance is always fun. I returned here multiple times over the course of a week.

Local icon for breakfast. We always try to stop when we are in Iowa City. Often there is a wait, but not this time (the students are gone in the summer?). I love the sweet potato pancakes, my husband had the "Iowa hog" omelet (pork sausage) and my daughter had the French toast with strawberries and cream. Very hearty fare... More

While usually crowded, service is relatively fast. It's inexpensive and there's a variety of dishes, with breakfast available all day.

This restaurant came up in a review and my daughter and I decided to check it out. When we arrived , restaurant was packed and there was a line. It was definitely worth the wait. Try out the Mexican Omelette. The tingle it leaves on your tongue was great. The pie shakes are very good. Must try item.

Had a great breakfast with lots of character and decor, and very friendly service. Apparently this is the place to go from college students, to farmers, to politicians. Down home service and the food is home-sized servings. Close to the beautiful down town/ campus area. Not to be missed!!
