“Step back in time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

The owner was the first person we met, and she was friendly and courteous, and dressed in the spirit of the 50's. The menu certainly fits the period, and the food was beautifully presented, tasted wonderful and was also in the portions of the 50's. The place was extremely clean and appealing; even the restrooms looked like they were just completed. A meeting room is available for special groups. We will definitely go back for more.

“Another great American Diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

We found this small diner when we had to visit US Cellular and what caught my attention was the word "Pie". Although I did not eat the pie here is looked pretty good. Service was very good, fast and efficient. Coffee was kept filled and the waitress kept an eye on us. The menu is very extensive, but what caught my eye was the fact that everything that requires baking is done on the premises. The food was exceptionally good. The homemade biscuits light and fluffy with great portions of hash browns etc. More than enough to keep us going for the day. I would definitely recommend this diner for breakfast or brunch. We went back for a return trip on Sunday morning, sadly enough to find them closed. However in their defence the shopping area was pretty dead itself.

I read your review and was disappointed you did not find us a delicious and happy place to be. You did not say what you ate so it is hard for me to know what to do or how to respond. We have so many great menu items its difficult to have someone write a review based on just one. We always hope, if someone is disappointed in what we serve, they will say so while we can do something about it, ie, give them a different menu item, take their ticket and meal is free, or offer them free meal next visit. We work hard, to make sure all our customers are happy, and I am sorry we missed the opportunity to make you a long time customer.
Many blessings

PS If you wouldn't mind, I would like to know what you ordered. Thanks. punkysdiner@gmail.com
