Wonderful start to our day with breakfast and great atmosphere. Excellent service. Large portions though, enough to share.

Good diner food. Can't go wrong with a burger or breakfast. The diner has 1950's flair. Good for families or a quick bite. The food is consistently good. The menu has a good selection for everyone. Prices are fair and service is good.

The food was average. The service was average. The place was decorated in 1950s style and photos of hundreds of local street rods and restored cars line the wall.
