Take a walk back in time as you walk through the door! Amazing diner with the friendliest staff around! Traveling through and stopped for a late lunch and they did not disappoint! We both enjoyed their tenderloin, and tender it was, no knife necessary! Had to order a side of beef and noodles just to taste, delicious! The food was... More

Live in the neighborhood, but had not been here in years due to a bad experience with previous owners, so finally gave it another shot. Fairly typical diner menu, but everything fresh and well prepared. Tried the pork tenderloin with fries, fried green tomatoes, beef and noodles with a side of vegetables. Fried items expertly done, great taste you want... More

Saw it on DDD and went for lunch. A bit disappointed. My blank n bleu burger was mediocre at best (nearly broke a tooth on a piece of gristle). Beef and noodles had good flavor but only had a couple small pieces of beef (basically gravy noodles). Onion rings were good. Dining room needs remodel and de-molding on ceiling. Restroom... More

My son wanted to come here. He saw the restaurant reviewed on the Food Network Channel. We ordered the meatball appetizer, which was four meatballs covered in red sauce and melted mozzarella cheese. It was hot and tasty. My son and I ordered the beef and noodles with mash potatoes and green beans. My husband ordered the chili spaghetti. The... More

This is a classic drive-in restaurant. The drive-in part is still there but not in use any longer. The inside looks like it is frozen in 1955 (in a good way). The service was fast and friendly and the food good. Prices are reasonable. I was there for a Vintage Motorcycle meet which is the first Thursday of every month.... More

Our waitress was great. She was fast, and helpful, but not hovering over us. Food was good. I had the tenderloin sandwich, wife had a very good pork chop meal. They didn't have onion rings that I really wanted, but that tells me they are really good because they were out. Only $21 for the total bill. Definitely got a... More

We love going to DDD restaurants and this place looked like the classic dive on the outside. That being said, the food was DELICIOUS!!! I had one of the best meatball subs of my life and it was worth the extra drive. In addition to the great food the people were very friendly. I would make going back a priority... More

Since going to College in the Mid-west years ago, I've always been searching for a great breaded pork tenderloin sandwich when driving from Tucson to Up-State NY, which I do twice a year. My friends from the Mid-west tell me it's getting harder and harder to find a non-chain restaurant that features such an epicurean delight in the middle of... More

I order from here once or twice a week. I love their salads, especially with the homemade ranch dressing. They have the most awesome pellet ice which keeps my drink cold all day. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner you can't go wrong.

After finding this place online I knew we'd love it and we did. The service kinda sucked but the food was amazing. I had the western skillet but wished I could have ordered one of everything. Even the toast was great. We debated coming back for dinner too.
