I can't believe this place got good reviews. There's a wind blowing through it - I was freezing and food was mediocre. No thank you.

This is a local, small diner that serves good food. The owners are friendly and care-they will do whatever they can to make sure customers are happy. The portions are generous, prices reasonable.

As others said, don't let the location deter you, the food is Excellent and filling. We both had to try the corned beef hash and we were not disappointed. Large pieces of real corned beef, onions, peppers and potatoes. Good service.

This place is a hidden gem. Don't be deterred by its location or appearance. It is a true diner with a huge menu. Corned beef hash is fantastic. Specialty pancakes, like the gingerbread pancakes, are amazing. This is probably one of the only places where...More
