You wouldn’t think this diner would be a good choice for holiday dining, but you’d be wrong. No matter how bush this place is, the food is always good and service always eager to please. The menu is massive, and prices are reasonable.

The food is fresh, delicious, very generous portions, and reasonably priced. Some places seem like they heat up pre-packaged meals, but not here. This truely seems like home cooked meals. I can't say enough about this place!
