This place is a must when in Chattanooga. The huge menu is varied as diner menus should be! I have tried breakfast and dinner during my stay. The service, food taste and portion size were always above and beyond!!!

My wife and I ate here on a Friday afternoon and it was good. The food was good and the service was OK. The portions of the food were very large so you will not go hungry. The menu has plenty of variety as well.

Step back in time to a restaurant that not only provides food but atmosphere where portions are generous and one will not leave hungry. Excellent value for ones money. Hamburgers are enormous.

Stopped over here on our way through Tennessee for lunch, and I wasn't disappointed. They have a large menu and the food was really good, with large portions. Despite being stuffed at the end, eating a slice of cake is a must do. In fact it's worth popping in just for a bit of cake, if that's your thing.

Loved this restaurant. We went twice on our honeymoon and were shocked by the variety of menu options from greek to Mexican to steaks to typical diner food they had it all. The desserts were delicious and huge! A must stop.
