A classic!

We just had to visit the new location during our visit. Everything as expected but in a larger location. same food, familiar faces in staff and waiting outside as they wait for open tables. Came here twice we liked it so much. always something to chose for everyone in our party.

Decent food, reasonable price. Had the creamed chipped beef and daughter had hotcakes. Both were typical of diners we're accustomed to. Not sure how some reviewers expect to be wowed by standard breakfast food.

I understand this is a new location for this restaurant. Heard it had the best breakfast. Yes, you will wait OUTSIDE in the hot sun in line until a table is ready. We had the most RUDE waitress I have ever encountered. By her accent I assumed she was there for summer work. She made us feel rushed and uncomfortable... More

one of the best and original breakfast spots in O.C., MD! Get there early before the line forms! Cheap eats and very filling.

Number one rule: GET THERE WHEN THE DOORS OPEN, if you don't make it, just find something closer/ more convenient. Your going to wait. Looks big on the outside, but The place is small. Now my mom is a good old country cookin' lady. And she has always made creamed chipped beef. And her's is GOOD. this stuff was good... More

This restaurant was recommended by a family member so we expected it to be good but the breakfast was beyond good. It was fabulous! Both the food and service were wonderful. Would have eaten breakfast here everyday but we didn't go until our last day in OC. We will be back!

First time visit to what appears to be a well known breakfast club with a line out the door. We were greeted and seated in a very short amount of time. The environment is family friendly, clean super comfy seating area. Food wise it's ok --the hash browns tasted fresh & yummy. Worth the stop and will revisit on next... More

Maybe I'm getting old, maybe I just know good cooking when I have it, or maybe this is just a case of false advertising. We stopped here for breakfast, had pancakes (average), eggs, and the house specialty cream chipped beef. The cream chipped beef was full of cream, not so much beef. It was dull, pastey, and tasted like flour... More

Our family has to stop here at least once every time we r in OC. The only con is the lack of space. It is very small and due to the excellent food is always packed. Food is always fast,fresh and hot despite how busy the general's kitchen gets. Won't leave OC with out having my breakfast here at least... More
