“Old time diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is the original diner - hearty food, basic menu, take out or eat in. Lots of interesting nostalgia, old signage, booths or counter stools. The food is usually good, but not always consistent (depends on who is cooking?). Prices have gone up a bit, but are still reasonable. They still make real, old-fashioned milk shakes.

“Typical greasy spoon”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Was hoping for something a bit more unique and interesting. Although there are some weird menu items such as peanut butter burger, the quality was just greasy spoon.

Neat joint inside. The best part of the lunch for sure was the decor.

“Not impressed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

Deluxe cheeseburger was overcooked and tough, lettuce was barely there and wilted, tomato was runny. Not too many fries (they looked and tasted frozen). Waitress never smiled and did not check on us at all through the meal and I really wanted a refill on my pop. Seating at the tables is cramped and uncomfortable. Disappointed and I will not be going back.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

From the friendly greeting to the service this is a good local spot for breakfast. Varied menu & casual comfortable atmosphere. Quick service and food plentiful and prepared as ordered. Plan to return for lunch.
