My family and I have eaten here on and off for years at this place. We ate here in October 16 and it was not very good. I mean breakfast is breakfast but the ceilings and floors are dirty. There is mold on the ceiling that you can see. The ceiling was dripping from the A/C on to our table... More

Great food, prices and service. My husband got the western omelet with potatoes and toast and I got eggs over medium with grits. Will definitely be back.

Average food, typical diner, but the service was excellent- the food came very fast, and the waitress was particularly kind to our one year old son.

Just had a delicious pancake at this diner. The place itself breathes the classic wish-we-had-more-left diner experience from the seventies. The service is good, the food arrives quickly and everything is what I expect from a diner. Great and fun experience

If you are a world traveler you will love this eatery. The collection of wooden spoons, a touch of class from the past. The egg salad is prepared fresh daily. Thank you, Cookie! And, let's applaud "Chef Alex" too.
