Giant Burgers

We stopped by this little diner after a day at the Hall. It is definitely an unassuming place but the food was good and portions were big. My wife and I both had a burger. I'm a big eater, but if you don't have the largest of appetites, one may be big enough to share. We got some fried mac... read more

We were out late and hoping to catch dinner and they were about to close in 1 minute and she still took us in! Many thanks to them first for that. We ordered their Wednesday Special and it was very good and satisfying! The veal parm was so yummy!! We would like to go back for breakfast one day especially... More

My daughter and I tried this little diner out. She was hesitant, as it is rather old in appearance, but she was open to something new. Best burger we have ever had! Hands down! If you like eggplant, the eggplant fries are really good. We went there 3 times, and made sure to take the guys there after their week... More

We were lucky enough to get a table right away. The diner seats about 30 people. The positive is the location - right on the main street near all the shops. Inside it is neat to look at all the historic photos of the diner. However, the food is average. We had a burger - yes it was huge but... More

In Cooperstown we ate here based on a recommendation from another traveler--then went back again the next day. Great for breakfast and lunch--nice diner and honest straightforward food.

Breakfast anytime! I think so....sleep in late and eat breakfast when you do get up. Loved it, local folks, cozy and friendly. Very small place, but decently priced.

We went here prior to visiting the Hall. We arrived at about 8:00 am on a Monday morning. At the time of our arrival there was 1 table left. As prior reviews mentioned the place is small. Observations while there seemed to indicate there was a good deal of local regulars eating as well as tourists. Given the "manhattan" type... More

Well first of all the place is way to small to accommodate more than 25 people, secondly the environment is so filthy and the tank clothes are absolutely horrendous. When a few friends and I visited this past weekend, we were flooded with an immediate smell of cat pee when we entered, it was not an enjoyable experience. Food was... More
