Good home cooking

I eat here fairly frequently. The food is pretty good. They have a large menu with a decent vegetable selection. Good grilled chicken salad, decent pitas, good burgers, decent plate dinners. Menu is similar to a diner. Good breakfast menu. Reasonably priced. Decent service. Older building.

I have been here several times and although the food is reasonably decent, the prices are not. At one time, the food and prices were good, but they have been living on an old reputation too long and have raised their prices far beyond what is reasonable.

Then I got a fish sandwich and when I asked for tarter sauce they told me it would be extra. I asked why didn't it come with the... More

The pita sandwiches are very tasty. My wife had the fried flounder and said it was prepared very well. The only complaint with the food was that her Blackeyed peas were cold while the fried squash was too hot to eat without injury. Service was friendly and reasonably fast (excluding the kitchen, which seemed more involved with sending out burgers... More

This place has been around forever...because it is so good. Have the best hamburgers. Sometimes you may have to wait awhile to get your food because they are normally busy all the time, but it is worth it.
