It's been many years, like 10 or more since I last ate here. It hasn't changed much. Still as good if not better. The portions are huge and the food delicious. At least here when I ordered my cheeseburger well done, it was well done.

Yes they do. My favorite is the 'build your own omelette' or the pancakes. The bacon cheeseburger is also delicious. Arrive hungry, their portions are huge and can be shared by two people.
