Not fancy so come casual. An overwhelming number of choices makes it easy to find something you'd like. Should satisfy everyone in the family. From breakfast to dinner, you will not go away hungry.

Excellent home cooked meals. Prices are very reasonable. The restaurant is clean. The wait staff is friendly and efficient. GCC is a diner. It can be noisy and crowded. But, it's the best diner I have ever visited. Highly recommended!

The waiter was very good and always came back to give us refills and ask us if we needed anything. He was very professional and had a great sense of humor. The food was awesome.

The food was excellent and the service was great. They are very fast here and give you a lot of food. The prices are a little high, but I think it's worth it. I would eat here again anytime.

Thank onlythebest717
