We come here for quick, reliable food and it's close to home. This last time we weren't too happy with the waitress. We ordered breakfast (eggs on toast, fruit) but didn't want the potatoes and beans yet she brought them on the plates. When I...More

The price they charge for ordinary dinner food was incredible. For the money you paid, you would have to go to any 5 stars Hotel with more quality and sophisticated food as well as courteous service with classy ambicance! Stay off this place completely!!!

Food here is pretty typical diner food. Great big milkshakes and huge platters of food, but nothing special. Not dissin' it, just saying. The day we went for lunch it was busy, so service was a bit slow.
