The previous reviews are true - the pancakes here are as big as your head. They will fill you up. Try the Mancakes if you are truly brave, but be warned it is for professional eaters only. Hot Metal is in my heavy rotation for a weekend breakfast. My favorite is the Egg White Scramble, 5 whites with tomatoes, peppers,... More

This is a cool diner with great food. We were very happy with our soft taco eggs, french toast and pancakes. On Sundays a band plays a mellow jazz vibe which made it all the better. The staff was friendly and made us feel welcome. We prefer eating at the counter. The appliances behind the counter are covered with humorous... More

Stopped in after a trip to the Doctor with my wife. Good coffee great friendly service and a breakfast burrito that was out of this world. Too much too eat at one sitting but I definitely put a big dent in it. The friendly laid back service sets it apart from other diners. Will definitely try it again soon.

We found this sports bar while on the long journey home from Arizona. One would never guess what was behind the doors from the street. Although we were here for a quick lunch, we enjoyed conversations with the bartender and learning the history of the premises (it has the original vault open for display). The decor is very sport bar... More

Huge meal portions and great pricing. Waitress could have slowed down and been a little more personable instead of zooming around barely responding.

My husband and I went here for breakfast and the food is delicious! My husband ordered the "mancakes" and these pancakes were huge! They overflowed off of the plate! I gladly tried a few bites and they were wonderful! Absolutely delicious! I had over easy eggs with bacon and Italian bread toast. It was just great! We left there full... More

Typical diner atmosphere with smells ranging from fried eggs & bacon to burgers & fries. Service could be a lot better. As w/ith alll small places there are the regulars who are there on a daily basis. The waitresses usually get cought up in their conversations making the rest of us wait until their conversations are finished. Other then that... More

Have stopped here frequently on weekends as the food is good and the portions are large. In the beginning the atmosphere was cool and if you got sassy with the waitress she would put you in your place! Just a fun time was had by all. The atmosphere was really toned down, don't know why, but still a great place... More
