My son & I had lunch here today. The mushroom-Swiss burger I had was delicious, generously topped with 2 slices of REAL Swiss cheese (not the nasty fake processed stuff some places try to pass off as real), fresh lettuce, sliced tomato & pickle. My son had a Club Sandwich and reported he liked it a lot.
We both had homemade pie for desert. Service was prompt and friendly.
This diner is still evolving and I am liking it better every time I come in.
Just last week I tried the Turkey Burger with the fresh herb seasoned patty...very tasty, moist too.
Karen Ruble is a delightful host and owner and clearly wants this to be the best diner around and she is taking steps to make that dream a reality.
I'm looking forward to trying the breakfast, which I hear good things about.
Based on my last three lunch experiences, if I were visiting Hannibal & staying downtown(or a local looking for something off the beaten path and good), I'd make a beeline to this comfy, friendly "not your average" diner.
Two thumbs up, Karen! We'll be back!
