“Home Cooking for Sure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

If you want large portions of good home cooking, try this place. Not fancy but they draw a huge crowd. We prefer breakfast or lunch.

“Excellent home cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2011

A nice menu of home cooking style breakfasts, lunches and dinners.
Our breakfast came out quickly and hot. Eggs, were perfect, hashbrowns were perfect.
Our server could have used a shot of personality, but she was extremely busy.
Parking is horrible, but the food is worth searching for a place to park.

“Like Denny's!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2010

This restaurant is a lot like Denny's, in fact, I think it took over ownership from a former Denny's. The food is just fine, nothing too fancy, but it is diner, and sometimes that's really all you want. :) Check the newspaper or mailers for coupons, they have varying specials and percent discount coupons as well.
