We go here when we're looking for real Diner food! And that's exactly what you will get here. Its set up inside like your traditional trolley car diner. With booths and a counter. Friendly wait staff. A typical menu. Delicious food, big portions. Average prices. If you looking to step back in time, with the fifties ambiance this is your... More

Oh my goodness!!! My husband and I thought a quick lunch at a quaint little diner would be a good idea. The wait staff was incredibly rude. Not sure our server knew how to smile or say more than "drink?" and "here". Not a smile or even any eye contact. Food was so so. Even though the menu says "comes... More

I enjoyed the casual, diner atmosphere. Went on a Sunday morning and immediately found two seats at the bar. The diner is small, so I'm not sure if the wait time varies, but there didn't seem to be more than one party waiting at any time. The food was good but pretty typical breakfast fare. I got the banana bread... More

We were in Lincoln for the long Columbus day weekend and have been in this area a lot. We typically stay in a timeshare with a kitchen, so breakfast is the one meal that's easy to cook in. However, we went out for breakfast after checking out of our hotel and I was so glad we went here. It is... More

Well, it doesn't have to be a sunny day or a rainy day to go out for a great breakfast at this diner. We had seen it sitting by the side of the road in Lincoln for years and always wondered if it was any good or some day meriting a breakfast stop. What a nice surprise! We will definitely... More

I LOVE this diner. It is one of my favorite places to have breakfast. Thier fancy scrambled eggs are delicious! If you have a sweet tooth try the banana bread french toast. I also like that they serve turkey sausage too.
