Back in Time

A great place to eat. We were there a couple of times for breakast and loved it. Diner stye ambience with great old fashion service we enjoyed with Mom ad Dad in the 50's& 60's. We need to go there for lunch as what we saw being served looked delicious.

We were advised to visit here on our journey from Lake Tahoe to Las Vegas and we were not disappointed. The breakfast was excellent, so was the service and it didn't cost a fortune. I highly recommend a visit!

I have eaten here pretty regularly for 35 years. Breakfast and lunch, mostly lunches. Soup, sandwich, burgers and fries, steak , sausage or chop or fresh fish with a big green salad, omelets, pretty waitresses, lively at noon hour, quieter before and after. Check the special board before the menu, mix and match items to your personal desire.

Pleasant neighborhood restaurant, but nothing special. The food and service is very average, but it is never bad.

Prices are good for the amount of food served. Home made taste, plenty of selection. Breakfast especially tasty and served quickly and hot. Great location, near on ramp to Highway 50.

Old fashion in some ways, this restaurant is a local favorite. It is only open to around 1 or 2 pm. It is moderately priced but large amounts food and great quality. Highly recommended if you are in town and looking for a special breakfast. It is hearty and good. All the morning breakfast's are good and I really like... More

Well done at every level. Service, food quality, etc. Weird little diner thing going on that is just adorable. This place is number 1 for breakfast, then Heidi's.

Good for the basic breakfast items. Very limited seating. It's undergoing some remodeling which may provide more. This is a no frills place. Food comes out fast. Staff has always been friendly towards us but when things get really busy, the are in hurry up mode.

My husband and I were in Carson City checking out the possibilities for a retirement move when we happened upon this little gem. It was recommended by the woman at the front desk at our hotel and was only a short walk away. It is a place that we probably would not have wandered into on our own - nothing... More
