Be hungry. This diner serves great food and plenty of it. Get ready for a treat. Hash is to die for. I'll be back with more friends.

Busy dinner across the street from NewBridge Bank Park. Usually a wait for tables. Portions are generous and the food is good. The biscuits looked great but they were too dry.

Was visiting the Greensboro area and found this spot. Excellent choice! Great diner experience. Coffee was great, food was good and the biscuits were enormous! Got the apple butter to accompany my biscuit ... yum! Service was great!

I think it is the best breakfast spot in Greensboro. The service staff needs replacing though as they were downright non-communicative the entire visit. I felt like I was actually an inconvenience for a minute. The food made up for the rudeness, believe it or not.

Worth the wait on a Sunday morning - delicious food, great portions...the biscuits are enormous! We didn't have a long wait when we went, but it was a rainy morning & you have to wait outside as the restaurant is small & uses its space for tables & food! We drove by last weekend & the line was much longer... More

I enjoyed a great breakfast- scrambled eggs, bacon, grits, and a huge biscuit. The eggs were cooked nicely, bacon was crispy, and the biscuit was excellent. The biscuit was gigantic, but it was still really tasty with a soft, fluffy texture. Up until about 7:30 am, this breakfast (with other options like toast or home fries) is only about five... More

There are times when I am guilty of not appreciating the Greensboro restaurant environment, or at the very least, not giving the proper respect to the gems of that scene - gems like this busy, funky little diner with pictures of Lexington barbecue pigs on the walls, which serves (with pleasant efficiency) excellent comfort food morning, noon, and night, and...
