Great breakfast spot alone or with friends. It has all the classics and very friendly service. Old school in the best sense of the word(s).

I was here for lunch. It was not very crowded and served water and coffee immediately. I ordered the burger and it was great. I will be back here for breakfast. They do seem to have a policy of credit card with ID only or...cash. And a lot of the prices are without tax, so the price may escalate a bit. The portions are big, the coffee is unlimited and everything is clean.More

Great location and a favorite for locals. Good solid value and food. M to F there are morning specials. Daily specials such as the Acapulco Omlette are fantastic.

Went here with three adults and two kids for breakfast on a Sunday. I couldn't resist eating way more than I should. EXCELLENT waitress who was very helpful with the kids. I'd go back anytime .... but I would try to eat less ( and...likely fail ).More

Open-faced turkey sandwich perhaps tells it all: canned salty gravy and a thick slice of dry meat on toast, but lots of it, on a large oval ceramic plate. Used to eat in places like this when I was in high school (after the 1950s!)....Padded booths. Probably still serving canned french beans as a side, and deeply fried onion rings. Breakfast, too, is classic, whether waffles or French toast with un-eggy scrambled eggs under lots of syrup.More

In some respects, I find the menu to be akin to IHOP's menu. My grandson and I had the pancakes, and the server was very nice and personable. A good place to eat your basic breakfast or sandwiches.

I enjoy this place for breakfast or a late night piece of pie. They do have lunch and dinner as well. Conveniently located off the expressway and walking distance from the Blue line.

Good hash, bacon, eggs, and sausage served quickly and without fuss. Very American diner vibe to the whole experience.
