I'm from Winnipeg, Canada and I can now say that a lot of restaurants in Winnipeg are now serving these.

This was a great place for comfort food. Pot roast, chile, ect. Owned by other good restaurants. However we won't go back. Two different times there was hair in the food. We are done with them!

Our family loves the diner for all occasions because the food is tasty for both adults and children and the ambience is fun. We especially like going to the diner in the winter around Christmas time. The throwback exterior located in Downtown Sioux Falls gives you the impression you've just entered an Norman Rockwell painting. Couple this with great food... More

I had the breakfast poutine, and it was excellent. Big chunks of bacon, and delicious cheese curds. That's the only time I've ever been there, but based on that I'll definitely recommend it!

We had dinner here on a cross country trip. We read the good reviews on this site and they were correct. The service was great, the food delicious. The prices were reasonable. I can highly recommend it!

This is a really nice downtown old fashioned diner. The food and service are good and the atmosphere is really neat. The wait times can be a bit long on the weekends. They have great milkshakes!!! I like to come for weekend brunch with the wife. You can also have a nice lunch outside in the summer.
