I usually sit at a table, however, on Saturday mornings I choose to sit at the counter since it's really busy and families need the tables/booths - not me. The waitresses are friendly and efficient. It's very seldom that my coffee cup or soda glass is more than 1/2 empty.

This is a restaurant where the locals eat and visit. We have only tried the breakfasts. Service was ok, but not fantastic. It was greasy, but that is what I expect when I order bacon and fried eggs. The toast was over buttered. I read the other reviews. There are not many options in this town. I am not in... More

The worst food I have had in a very long time. My sampler breakfast was loaded with grease and had virtually no flavor. Non-smoking area filled up with smoke. Overall an awful experience. The cute appearance and history of the building do not make up for terrible food. I took a shower when I got home and washed my clothes... More

The food is what you would expect of a diner. Good but not super BLTs, pancakes, Rye toast, etc. Walk to the left if you are a smoker, to the right, non-smokers. What is excellent is the pie. Huge lemon meringue pies, chocolate pies, German Chocolate cakes, etc. Fun fake telephone booth in the center og the diner along with... More

This is a one of a kind restaurant. Off the beaten path in Union Missouri. My husband and I have been here twice and know we will return many times. The food is great, atmosphere is great, and waitresses best beyond compare. If you are looking for nostalgia this is the place to go. Love it

Purchased a restaurant.com coupon for this restaurant because we wanted to try it but the owner/manager said they were not taking them anymore because "I was losing money on them." He should have honored the coupons that were purchased as they had no expiration date and then not contracted again with restaurant.com if he was unhappy. You don't screw the... More

When the waitress came back and asked if everything was okay I explained that she was unhappy with her meal. She replies with , oh, we are trying a new... More
