“Sorely Overcrowded and Overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

This restaurant came highly recommended by a trusted friend. We came around noon and there was a short wait. It is a large restaurant with a big menu but the food was just so-so. My husband had to send his eggs back because they were overcooked and the waitress was so busy it was hard to get coffee refills. Very noisy due to crowding. I think if I returned, I would get a lunch menu item. Will give it another shot because of convenience and the large variety of menu items.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

I love this restaurant. They make breakfast quesadillas, my favorite. The food (freshly squeezed OJ), the ambiance (they play my 50's-60's oldies), the decor and the service are perfect. Prices are very reasonable. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

“Team Breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

The food was good and the portions were perfect. Was disappointed on how they handled the bill. We suggested that they take our orders by jerseys numbers as it will make things easier for the wait staff. Unfortunately, they got confused and didn't know how to separate the bills. Ended with one large bill which we had to figure who owed what.
One of the waitresses was a bit snarky about having separate bills and kept saying her way was the correct way. This is something you don't say to a customer.
If it wasnt for the attititude of one of the wait staff, review would have been very good.

“worth checking out..........”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

I have never had anything but average food and service at this restaurant, but I know others who absolutely LOVE it! My advice would be to check the menu online to see if the selections and prices appeal to you and then give it a try. You might be one of the lucky ones who finds it to be five-star quality. They have an enormous parking lot, which is a plus.
