Went in for dinner around 8:30pm. We were greeted and sat right away. Our server was very nice, patient and efficient. The food was delicious!

Came here after never being waited on at another restaurant. Staff was very nice but that's where it ends. Typical Big Boy fare. Place was filthy. Our college age son even declared the bathroom off limits.

We have been having our breakfast here for 1000 years and are glad to report a steady, reliable consistency from the kitchen. The wait staff is quirky but very pleasant and cordial. A great place to charge up for the day ahead. Highly recommend.
