This is a great little place for breakfast and lunch. A greasy spoon diner, yes, but the food is fantastic and fairly priced and the service is quick and friendly!

This is a longtime local favorite - a staple for breakfast before work. Just good old fashioned diner food, nothing fancy. Large portions and the food came out faster than it took to place the order.

For a little hole in the wall Diner I would recommend trying it out. We were there for breakfast and for the price that we paid for our meal the food was awesome. The staff was friendly and the service was excellent and the portions of food was awesome.

The southwest omelet is full of bacon and super delicious. They don't have decaf coffee but the southwest omelet is so good I don't care. Very relaxed atmosphere, recently painted. I've only been for breakfast, and like sitting on the section facing the street. Bright and cheery, including the staff.

Really good traditional breakfast! Last time I had the breakfast scramble and a waffle. Hubby had the Dagwood sandwich. Always good! Will definitely go back for other goodies. I prefer local flair over chain restaurants, so anytime I get the opportunity to go to local joints I do it. This one didn't disappoint.

Very good basic breakfast. Busy. Crowded. But worth the time. Waitresses and support staff very nice. Fairy clean little diner in a semi-industrial area of Kansas City Kansas.

I have driven past this little diner on Southwest Boulevard literally hundreds of times! It was always one of those "we should try that place" restaurants, but I am so glad we finally did. We went for breakfast on a Sunday morning. The place is kinda small and there weren't a whole lot of open spaces to sit because so... More

Great little diner hidden amongst industrial buildings and supply houses. I was just driving around looking for something different. I found it at Dagwood diner, this place place brought back memories of my Dad taking me to these old school diners back in the 70's. The breakfast was great but I finished it off with a milk shake that was... More
