Always a great breakfast. Parking lot is a little tight sometimes, but you can park on the street. But service is always excellent and food is always good.

I love this place because it's usually seating within a few minutes. Extensive menu for breakfast and lunch and the portions are so large you could really share them or take half home. The hamburgers require a lot of napkins. they are juicy with sliced tomatoe, lettuce, onion, thousand Island dressing, and pickles. all-around a perfect burger. The breakfast portions... More

I've been here several times for lunch and the food is amazing. I've had the quesadilla, a burger, and a salad, on three different occasions and they were all absolutely outstanding. Highly recommend this casual cafe for lunch.

Ditto on the hash browns, I get them instead of fries with any sandwich. The burger is a testament to just using a good quality mix in the patty and cooking it properly. A modest restaurant--don't take anyone you want to impress with ambience--but the food is uniformly great quality and always cooked properly. I live 15 miles away so... More

Unfortunately this type of diner doesn't warrant a $10 lunch without a drink. The food is good but inconsistent. I'm sure the current economy is affecting them but probably raising the prices will not be beneficial in the long run.

all food is good. great burgers with the works. not fast food at all. Breakfast is as good as it gets in Los Al. All at a fair price. If you can handle it the milk shakes are the old fashioned home made right in front of you. Be wild and go with the malt.
