“Cute but average food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

The restaurant has a nice retro style, with decor similar to diners of the 1950's. For dinner, the menu is limited (burgers and a few dinner entres). Nothing on the menu seemed especially creative. Overall, both the food and prices are average. Service was fairly prompt. I recommend it for quick sit-down dining when you don't want surprises.

“Twice as Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

Been there twice. First time we had wonderful service and good solid diner food. Second time we had even friendlier service and when we asked for whipped cream on our hot cocoa were treated to a mountain of it with a little flair.

Denny's, this ain't. Support this family owned business and the wonderful people in it as we will each time we visit College Park.

“Decent simple place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Nothing fancy but not degradation either. The seating is a bit narrow/cramped and there's not much in terms of side dishes that's not very starchy, but the food arrives promptly and with a smile. I haven't been by on a Sunday morning but I imagine it must be very crowded.

“First timer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Visited this place for the first time for late breakfast. The service was quick, the waitresses were friendly and food was good. I had the Belgium waffle with scrambled eggs and turkey sausage. It's way better than any of those chain restaurants (ie, Denny's). I would definitely go back again. Be prepared to wait for a seat. The place isn't that big.

“Busy for breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

A small diner, but very busy with quick service. The food was good and the staff was very friendly. We were there for breakfast on a Sunday morning. The french toast was excellent!
