We stopped for lunch after visiting lions and tigers at a local conservation center. Friendly staff, clean diner. Most of the food is not freshly made on site. We were fine with frozen fries and preformed burgers. Two large groups had been seated just before we got there but our food came out quickly and it was tasty. Lots of... More

This restaurant has a unique diner-style atmosphere, and delivers exceptional value. Overall, it is hard to beat their burgers, and milkshake selection. The wait staff are friendly, and the service is fast. Very good choice for families with small children.

When we visit the relatives, this is always a good place to get a good meal. The burger baskets are excellent as is the chicken pie. Milk shakes are excellent as well. Service is always impeccable.

We stopped here as a ending spot after our visit to the Tanger Outlets across the street. The atmosphere was classic diner, and the food pretty much was as well. We were there on a Monday, and Chicken Pie was the daily special. It was not your ordinary chicken pot pie. What would normally be the inside of the pie... More

We got off the interstate to get gas and lunch and found the diner. What a treat. It was an authentic looking 50s type diner with booths and chrome leg tables and chairs. The service was fast and friendly and the food was great and cheap. The place was spotlessly clean. We would definitely stop here again.

Really delicious grilled chicken. Can be overpriced depending on what you get. My mom loves the spaghetti, and always has almost half left over. Great milkshakes and very accomodating for large groups. Really great customer service

I've been here a few times, and I like the food very much -- it's diner food, so don't go thinking it's 4 or 5 star quality -- but they do their particular style food BETTER than anyone else in town -- I think....
