This was a default choice because our preferred places were closed for Monday lunch. But I have to admit, though this is comfort food and formica, the food was really tasty and our waitress was a pro. So I have no regrets.

We have eaten here many, many times and have never been anything but thrilled with the food, the service and the prices. We love to have breakfast for dinner....and when the mood strikes-there is no where else we choose. They are always gregarious, professional and prompt. Highly recommend!

A good place to go when you don't need fancy and just want a good meal. We were a large, noisy group and everyone enjoyed their dinner.

Stopped for a quick dinner and was surprised in the condition of the place. Stains, dead bugs, burned out lights, dust... Could live with most of that but the food was mediocre at best. Skip and move on. On the positive side the staff was extremely pleasant and quick.

W ate breakfast here. I had the lighter fare game and cheese omelet, boyfriend and oatmeal, and kiddo had French toast sticks. Everything was really good, and when we told the waitress we were in a bit of a hurry, she was very helpful.

My friend likes to drag me here each time we get together. The coffee is weak and tastes like re-boiled grounds in a tin can. Their standard eggs & bacon (or sausage) usually sends me to the restroom for the day. This time I tried an omlet. It was rather thick & rubbery with skimpy filling but did not upset... More
