Great Value, Good Food, Extensive Menu

This is one really good dinner. The menu is very extensive. I ate here twice in a two day trip. Once by myself for breakfast and it was solid diner breakfast. During the trip for dinner, they provided great, fast friendly service with a packed house after the U.S.A. women’s soccer match. The... read more

Found this place on TA, while visiting my father in the hospital. It was a welcome distraction with awesome 50s and 60s music, a festive atmosphere, and portion size to keep the heart surgeon busy through the years till you I'm ready for a triple bypass! Our server, Trina, was a hoot and was particularly helpful with recommendations. I had... More

We had been traveling for three weeks from Seattle to Atlanta to Chattanooga, and this was the best meal we had anywhere. The food is fantastic, and the staff were really friendly. We went back once just for a snack, and ordered fried mushrooms. There must have been 20 to 25. The place is phenomenal !

Bizarre little place. You enter at the cakes and cash registers and ten walk through to the "Lobby" (I knew because there is a piece of paper on the door on which someone hand wrote "Lobby.") You wait there for your table, and it is actually the lobby for the adjoining discount hotel. Get over it and just do it.... More

This was quite convenient to our hotel, AND we got a 10% discount by showing our key card. Huge amount of food for a reasonably low price. We had both dinner and breakfast here.
