The owner was a jerk and service was slow and food was bland. Never going back. I miss Roberts when Terry owned it. He had great food and service.

The food not the best but you can't bet the price. If you want a $20.00 meal go else where. If you looking for a cheap meal the will fill you up you need to go here. The servers are great and the food is simple and easy on the wallet. There Egg Salad dressing is to die for. If... More

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

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.
