My hungry swimmer daughter and I had dinner for $25 with left overs to bring back to hotel for breakfast. The waitress was genuinely nice and helpful. While the food is not memorable, it is definitely great value.

Food was OK, average decent diner fare. Problem was after prompt seating, waited forever (over 20 minutes) for any server attention, and then over 20 more minutes for order to be filled. While paying, another couple was storming out, having waited over 22 minutes without being approached at all, so it wasn't just us. Oh well. they can't all be... More

Recently, was in town for business. Stopped in for lunch. Service was quick and friendly. Pretty typical diner food. Lots of food as well. However, the tutor tots were outstanding! Recommend picking over fries here.

At a height of lunch time, There was no parking issue (and there should not be a parking problem as this place was not LA). Inside was immaculately clean. They might... More

Had dinner one evening and breakfast next morning. Our servers really like their jobs and serving clients. One danced and hummed tunes the other liked to joke and kid with patrons. Fun place to eat and really fast service.
