“Like returning to the 60's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Good comfort food,and good service. Nothing fancy, just food like Grandma use to make. The kids enjoyed the juke box music and all the posters on the wall.

“Big appetite? Come here!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

Atmosphere- red, black and white diner look with old memorabilia on walls and oldies playing on the jukebox.
Service-lacking. But what little we received was efficient.
Food-Huge Huge servings. This is one place we would have been better off sharing a plate.
Overall, a comfortable place to come have breakfast with the family.

The staff is very hospitable. The food is suberb. The atmosphere sets you back into the old days. This is my favorite restaurant and I strongly recommend it to anybody searching for a great place to eat.
