American Diner

Went there for breakfast, which was really great. Good selection on the menu, coffee was only okay - just your regular american coffee. Staff was friendly and always refilling your coffee.

This hole in the wall in dire need of a face lift doesn't have the best food around. It's got a local following, a lot of families, couples and geriatricians because the price is so reasonable.

Visiting family in the neighborhood, and walked there for breakfast. I felt as if we were walking into a restaurant from back in the midwest, last century. It was not a negative for us, however. Breakfast was just what we expected, inexpensive, good coffee, fairly prompt service. Since we had our six year old grandson with us, it was important... More
