Great sandwich from my New Jersey roots. Was prepared just right and brought back that flavor from my youth. Highly recommended. Excellent service.

The last few times a coworker and I sat at the big round community table. It is a great table to have a conversation with others. This is a busy little place with great staff and many repeat customers including me!

Low cost home cooking. Staff are exceptionally well trained and friendly. Breakfast and lunch are excellent. If you have to wait for a table it is worth it.

The food is always good. The staff is always wonderful. They have good specials. Great Value!! You can eat there or take it out. Their meatloaf special is always a favorite, as is their prime rib sandwich.

My wife and I had read reviews about Lunch Lady so we set off to have breakfast there, no surprise the food was very good. Courtney our server was great, very pleasant, friendly and check our her nails they always match her outfits. The atmosphere is very cheery, bright and open so you feel relaxed and ready to enjoy yourself.... More

Probably the best Pastrami Ruben sandwich ever. They have a nice menu for breakfast and lunch, but I'm telling you right now don't miss this sandwich.

Went for a mid morning breakfast yesterday after my wife's medical procedure. She was especially hungry haven't not eaten sense noon the day before. The daily special was Blueberry Pancakes. To good to pass up. Two cakes in the serving with the best bacon anywhere. Delicious! Great food with outstanding service. Great local place where they treat you as family.

Locally owned and operated. Get there early or expect to wait. Everything is great, both food and service. Ask for the frequent diner card if you're local.
