Everything from a gigantic wheel bearing to a truck cam shaft to bicycles. Very interesting decorating. Food was no nonsense quality. I had beef stroganoff and was very filling be ware of lots of onions. The meatloaf was very good. Service was okay.

We go to breakfast here all the time. If you go for happy hour the tacos and pizza are yummy. They have a hall next door if you need it for your special occasions.
