Everything is pretty good, but breakfast is the best. Killer omelets & hash browns. Nice little local place, been here several times. Just what you'd expect from a neighborhood diner.

If you like meatloaf or hot roast beef sandwiches, etc., this is a good place to eat. Nothing fancy at all, but just simply good food. Prices and service are good, too. You may have to wait ... especially after church on Sundays.

Waited an hour for food. Cavatelli came tons of water in the bottom. All of our orders were wrong. And worst part the food was cold. Had to send every order back to be microwaved. Never got our salads. I won't be back

I like to eat here for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Never disappointed with the food, but it's really what you'd expect. Not special, but just regular American diner food.

We stopped in at the West Dess Moines-Westown location for a mid Saturday morning breakfast. Good service. My wife and I both order their regular breakfast special - and looked around as we waited. We both observed a facility which was dirty, Greece smudges on...More
