I like this place especially the 50's ambiance, but it closes at 2:00 PM everyday and it's hard to actually make it there in time to eat.

I saw this quaint little diner on main street in Pendleton while passing through. I read reviews of places to eat often on trip advisor throughout my travels and have noticed many to be biased. Possibly owners are posting their own reviews as well as the competition. I am not in the food business, so I can honestly give my... More

We have ate here several times and was always pretty good. Well they dropped the ball this time, I ordered a patti melt, they over cooked the burger and didn't grill the bread. I know it was a little before 1 and they close at 2 but good grief yuck.

The sign says "Voted #1. . ." But it must not have been based on the food. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't bad and the prices were reasonable but it was pretty much fast food. We had breakfast. My wife had a Mushroon a and Swiss Cheese Omelette which came with a single slice of cheap processed cheese slice.

We made the MISTAKE of stopping in for lunch during Round-Up! Understandably limited menu, BUT they overcooked the burgers to hockey puck standards and served a SEVEN dollar milkshake either too thick to drink with the tiny diameter straw offered, or thinned to chocolate milk consistency when asked to blend to drinkable status. Breakfast is served all day, and under... More

We had eaten at this diner several years ago and stopped again on our way home from eastern Oregon. Our waitress Marilyn is also the owner. The food was very good, expecially the taco omelet that was the special of the day! She is very friendly, and when I explained I always did review on tripadvisor, she gave me her... More
