Remarkably limited menu for a "diner". We waited a while in the tight tables for our order to be taken. Settled for the one reasonably acceptable choice. Nursed our drinks for a while, waiting and waiting. Then the server came back and asked us if we wanted our bread toasted. Yes, please. Then we waited a while longer and the... More

We returned to this diner for lunch being that we had stopped here three years ago on a similar trip to the South. This time it was a disappointment. Overpriced food, dirty bathrooms that smelled like urine. Overall appearance was extremely out of date. They seem to nickel and dime you for everything. First I was charged an extra 12... More

Great menu and non-expensive pricing definitely recommend if your staying at the Red Roof right next door.

This former NJ diner - Frank moved it - lives up to tradition. Good food and pleasant service (in spite of two key people not showing for the lunch shift ). The strawberry cake is phenomenal.

Decent diner pancakes. Large and warm on arrival at table. They were also on special, so pretty cheap. Coffee was meh. Service was less than attentive. Took quite some time after we were clearly finished eating before our bill was delivered to the table - but the salt-shakers are all now full for future patrons, so that might be a... More

What I liked was that I talked about what I was looking to eat and they were flexible. Frank came out to check what I had in mind. I got what I wanted. All of the people in the place were most agreeable and fun. Nice environment. I do not know how I would rate a diner higher.

The perfect lunch stop on a long journey. The food was very good and the servers were pleasant. I can personally recommend the turkey club and lemonade. How can an Arby's be the number one review when this place is in town.

On the good side, the place was spotless. Shiney, clean, and visually appealing. The waitstaff was exceptionally accommodating. But the five stars end there. We ordered meatloaf with gravy, mashed potatoes, and carrots. The meatloaf tasted more like bread than meat. The potatoes tasted like instant and the baby carrots had no taste. The garlic bread was completely uneventful. But... More

Homefries were starchy, not good. Food was over priced, average. Grits were the highlight of the meal.
