Now THIS is an old school diner! The portions are huge, the food is hot and tasty and the prices are reasonable. Open 24 hours a day and always seems to be full of people. It is easy to get caught in the rut of only ordering breakfast, but the rest of the menu is great as well. Of course... More

Family stopped here today to grab a bite to eat on way home from vacation. Stopped in 2011. Same great food. Menu is several pages as they offer about anything to eat. Cakes and pies have they own separate menu as they have a large selection! Defiantly stop here if you're passing through and are hungry.

Attached to the Best Western hotel parking is crowded at times, but worth the hassle. The staff is very attentive and the food is good. Eggs were cooked the way I ordered them, but once again, the toast was warmed bread. They were good about taking it back and giving me another order actually toasted this time. I was surprised...

Great old time feel restaurant with great food. Large portions and absolutely delicious. We had burgers that were amazing but the best was the fries, crispy and cooked just perfect. Oh and the lemon cheesecake was out of this world.

If they don't have it, it's probably not available anywhere! We've eaten there several times and have found this casual restaurant to be great! The prices are very reasonable and the food is delicious! They are open 24 hours a day, with breakfast served anytime. Their desserts are a meal unto themselves! This past visit our group had key lime... More

Breakfast was o.k. except for the bacon. Requested "crisp", but got dried out, brittle bacon. French toast was o.k. Went for late night dinner. Ordered patty melt. Don't know what it was, but did not taste like hamburger to me. Had a very "squishy" consistency.

Have only had breakfast but they have quite a large menu that includes lunch and dinner selections. Open 24/7. Good filling food. The desserts are AMAZING! Never have room to eat a slice of one of their many cakes or pies when I eat here but I always get a slice to go!

The variety of food choices were amazing. The portion sizes were very generous. The chicken pot pie would have been enough for both of us without the sides. Oh my......simply delicious. My husband and I both had carryout boxes with enough food for another meal. Since we were both pack we had to order a slice of cake to go.... More

This was our third time eating here. The size of the portions is amazing. My husband had a pot pie that was at least 9 inches in diameter! So many things seem to be made right in the restaurant. I would eat the chicken noodle soup any day of the week. The problem is we never have room for the... More
