Best Corned Beef dinner ever. Extreme value. Clean, fast, and fair priced.

“Had heard Good Things”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2011

Went for the hot dogs. Foot long but nothing special. Ordered them well-cooked, not delivered that way. The buns were not toasted which would've been ok if they weren't soggy. The french fries were terrific - thick cut and hot. Service was perfunctory. They didn't seem to really care if we were there or not. Other diners nearby were commenting that the sandwiches weren't what they used to be. I'm told that there are new owners.

“Bacon tastes like chemicals, fantastic pancakes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2010

We like this diner for breakfast. They have great pancakes. Our last few experiences haven't been as good. The bacon tasted so full of chemicals that no one at the table ate it. The service here is typical tired diner. The waitresses look tired and heve been working there too long, typical order takers with few smiles.
