This is a Hanover restaurant that has been around for a long time. It is often packed with folks. The only reason I can surmise is that the food is cheap. Along with that you get no taste, no atmosphere, nothing but cheap food that is from a frozen box and barely "cooked". I suggest just a standard no frills... More

I found this place thanks to Tripadvisor. We stopped for a late lunch after touring several food factories in the area. The food was simple, but good! The kids menu was great, one of the side choices on their menu was pudding. Who would have thought pudding...my kids had burgers, fries, pudding and a drink for under 5.00. If I'm... More

There are many great diner food options. My son loves the kids menu that ends with an ice cream sandwich at the end. The desserts are excellent as well. We visit often and never have a bad experience.

I've had soups, sandwiches and full meals here. Everything I've had is delicious and I usually have to take home leftovers. Great resturant for a great meal and talking to those you've brought with you. Not a loud, noisy place. Lots of seating with plenty of space between tables.
