One look at this place and you should know what you're getting. An old neighborhood diner. That's not a bad thing, sometimes you just crave the old style family restaurant: Outdated everything means you'll find some childhood memories regardless of where you're from. This isn't a modern diner offering "takes" or "updated classics", it's "Hot sandwiches" homemade LTOP burgers, Bacon/Eggs... More

First visit here and was already warned the place was in a bit of a time warp but we had brunch here and really enjoyed it. Very friendly wait staff and will perhaps return here one day if the visit permits

Breakfast was very good and quickly delivered. Staff was very attentive and friendly. Restaurant is rather rustic, pub style. Bathrooms a bit rough.

Friends took us here for a breakfast one Saturday morning and it was a delight, even though they were obviously busy. There were 8 of us and we all ordered slightly different things so it was nice to see the variety of good food that came out. Service was pleasant and fast, coffee offered several times. The food came out... More

The food is great as are the Waitresses. The mental Midget owners forced me to stop going there. I don't eat meat and for like 10 years I could get a third egg in place of bacon for the Specials price. Then some Einstein decided to take that option off. I decided stay anyway but that 3rd cost me $4.50... More

This is one of our favorite breakfast place to go because they serve all day breakfast. One thing to look out for is their farmers sausage which I order it as a side. Really great for sharing some grease with the boyfriend. A great family breakfast place to come and enjoy dining to.

I was there the second time, we had dinner after visiting African Safari, about 40 minutes drive to the restaurant. The reason we went to this restaurant because my daughter's boy friend residence was just around the corner. Great portion and tasty food, price was reasonable and very friendly service.

This Restaurant, is filthy, you should have a tetanus shot before entering, the carpets are absolutely filthy, with years of grime, the waitress cleans the chairs with a wet cloth then uses the same dirty cloth to wipe the tables, the owner wiped her nose with the back of her hand and then rubbed it into her pants. I ordered... More
