“The Worst Place I Have Ever Eaten!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

This was the most disgusting place I have EVER eaten at. The food was horrible. First, it took 20 minutes to get even waited on. They only had 3 other tables total. Then, they said they could not replace a salad for french fries, or even add french fries. Yet, they serve them as a side item. We all ordered fried food. Everything from chicken to seafood. Much like the decor, the oil tasted like it had not been changed since 1972. The waitress was pitiful. Barely checked on us and brought everything out in stages. There was not ONE EDIBLE item in any of our plates. NEVER EVER will we go here again.

“Favorite Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2011

The food is perfect for any meal of the day. They do serve breakfast all day long which is a bonus because their breakfast is amazing. Prices are very reasonable.Waitresses are very friendly and open to getting to know you but also know when to just leave you to your meal. I love the ambiance that this family restaurant provides and it is by far my favorite restaurant.

“Good diner!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2011

This place is similar to those diners found on the East Coast but are pretty much lacking in Madison. Both food and service is good. The waitresses make an effort to get to know you after a few times which is very nice. My biggest gripe is management that comes off as trying to chintz on every penny. That's not a pleasant feeling.

“Our stand by for breakfast or a homey lunch/dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2011

We live nearby, and for ten years this has been our "go to" spot when we want good breakfast or a fast homey lunch or dinner. It's not haute cuisine, it is more of a diner, but the prices are good, they have great soups and the service is friendly. Their pancakes are some of the best in town, and the owners are Albanian so they serve a decent gyro too.
