We went there to have breakfast before homecoming parade. We waited 20 minutes for someone to come get her drinks. And then another 10 for someone to take our order. We got our food in about 10 minutes. And then it took another 20 to get our bill. waitress was not very attentive with us. She seem to ignore us.... More

This is such a quaint, cute diner! The food was excellent and the service was terrific. It is right downtown Athens and easy to walk to and find. The milkshakes are yummy! We got burgers and they were all delicious!

We have been here a couple of times. We had good service and the burgers and the milk shakes were good. The decor was classic old diner.

I recently went her with a friend. She had the Rachel and I had a burger, I think it's the triple alarm burger. It was mildly spicy, but definitely good! The fries are yummy and the shakes...definitely worth every penny! The service could be better. The servers are college kids that would prefer to be chatting with their friends and... More
