I ordered simple scrambled eggs. When I took the first bite, they were raw & slimy. I took a second bite thinking that was just that piece of egg but the 2nd bite was just as bad. How hard is it to cook scrambled eggs?! When I told my waitress about it, she wanted my plate of food. I have... More

We had breakfast here on 11/29/14 and were surprised to see how much food they gave us. We had pancakes and eggs and the serving sizes were large, but the cost per meal was very reasonable. The food tasted great and we would visit this place the next time we are out this way.

All kids meals get free ice cream and all senior meals free dessert! Surprisingly, they serve beer which was nice to have with... More

This place is always busy and the food is consistent. I have been there for breakfast and lunch and have always been pleased with both the food and the service. I like to judge a place on how well they make eggs Benedict and for a diner like establishment, it is really pretty good. The prices are reasonable, the service... More

Big thumbs up! Every element of breakfast was delicious and cooked perfectly. Service was fast, friendly and efficient. Retro decor looks great, and the place is clean as a whistle. If prices were any cheaper, it would be free.
