Good food, good service. Great little dinner, always packed. Never had a bad meal whether breakfast, lunch or dinner. They close early so get there early to eat. Portions are good size, always served at correct temp, staff friendlly, quality eats and good prices.

We were greeted as soon as we walked in the door. Had to wait about 10 minutes for a table but service was fast. We all enjoyed a great breakfast with reasonable prices. Will go back next time we're in Akron.

The motto is eat pay get out! Not a hang out comfortable place at all, but if you want tons of bacon and good breakfast - go for it.
