The restaurant changed ownership a while ago. While they did keep the prior menu which has excellent hamburgers and breakfast items, they expanded their menu to include a number of Italian entrees. My favorite meals include the eggs benedict florentine, their hamburgers, and calamari pasta. Service is friend as are the owners.

Hadn't eaten there in years. I understand that it's now owned by the same owner as Roma's in the same town. I meet the owner and he was very welcoming and I told hu, zip want to bring a group in. The food was very good and a great selection. I definely would go again.

We love the burgers and the home fries here. Nice little restaurant based off of old movie starts, all the burgers are named after the movie stars. They can make every one of them vegetarian if you prefer. Their home fries are to die for. We have had other dishes too like egg plant parmesan and their grilled pita sandwiches,... More

The owner takes great pride in his menu, which, in addition to a straightforward offering of pastas, pizzas, and chicken dishes, includes daily specials. What is so pleasing is the focus on quality and execution of the cooking and not a dauntingly large menu. The standard dishes are very reasonably priced, and so are a good value. The bread is...

This is a family owned and run restaurant. The owners have been on the premises both times we stopped in. They purchased the restaurant not too long ago (I don't know how long) from original owners who specialized in American type food, which is still the large part of the menu. I highly suggest trying their homemade Italian offerings instead.... More

Since the new ownership, this restaurant has really improved. Not that the old one was bad, just that now it's better. Large menu. Owners are very outgoing. We had discussed with them about our having lived in Italy at one time, and next thing you know, we're having items not on the menu...thank you "mama". The food is terrific, the... More

This place is hidden and unassuming in a random strip mall. The food was delicious....they give you hot melted butter for you pancakes & waffles. The staff is so friendly! If you are in this area check it out.

If you haven't been to Stella's lately you should give it another try now that it's under new ownership. We were regulars there for 26 years when Stella was alive and she was a local legend, we all have "Stella Stories" and we loved our neighborhood restaurant but it changed after her death and all of the people that we...
