Delicious food!

My husband and I stopped here while traveling on the interstate-- I read about it on TripAdvisor. The diner is located next to a truck stop and very easy to find. It was very clean and almost full when we were there for lunch. I had the meatloaf which was delicious and my husband loved the open... read more

Stopped by for a quick lunch while traveling North on I 81 and we were very pleased with the sandwiches that we ordered. My wife got the club sandwich and I got the Reuben, both came with chips. The restaurant is part of a truck stop and was very clean with fast service. Our waitress was very nice and checked... More

Good stuff: lots of meat on the menu Lacking: Fruit plate Pricing: Big bang for your buck! Restaurant is vintage themed and neon lit... Would be cool to see it carried to the exterior.

Breakfast is the best. A clean place to eat in a hurry. Not only for truckers. Locals enjoy eating here also.

My birthday dinner on July 4th was a bust. Our waitress had difficulty understanding us. I love diner food and ordered a pork tenderloin special that was to have been breaded and fried - what I got was something entirely different although it was still pork. My husband had liver - both our meats were terribly overcooked. The slaw was... More

Stopped to grab dinner on my way home from work and decided to try the roast beef dinner. The beef was tender. The portion was HUGE and it came with delicious gravy, creamy homemade mashed potatoes and honey glazed carrots that melted in my mouth. The side salad I added was fresh, crisp and even had shredded cheese on top.... More

Due to unexpected traffic we decided to detour. This diner was conveniently located right off the exit. The menu offered great choices - from burgers to salads. The salad dressings were homemade and very tasty. As a family of 6, the menu offered choices for everyone. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The decorum is retro and very charming.

The retro red & chrome decor is inviting and reels of diner. Unfortunately, the food is not up to the billing. It is not that is all that bad, it's just not that good. One of our party had the strip steak that was overdone and bland. The BBQ was canned and the meatloaf was probably the best of our... More

Diner is close by to Interstate highway and thus convenient for travelers. I was a little put off by it being so dark as all the blinds were closed to keep out the sunshine. Our lunch was fine, no complaints of food or service but I couldn't wait to leave the darkened diner and return to sunlight.
