Not as good as it use to be! American fried potatoes were not done and we felt like we were being punished when we asked to have the potatoes cooked more, waitress acted like we should not ask that. She took the entire plate away...More

Been here a couple times for breakfast. All good. Service is very fast! Good portions and they've got many choices. It's a little cramped, but everyone is having a good time stuffing their faces.

This place has been here since I was a kid & maybe before [I'm now 80]. They close at 3:00pm but the food is plain good & fair price.

This place is a throwback to diners from 50 years ago. It might even be older than that. Lots of regulars go here for breakfast. I sat at the counter where there was a lot of banter from them. There are a lots of tables...More

Response from Chris H | Reviewed this property |
It is a general idea of how expensive a meal at this restaurant will be. $ is a fast food type meal. $$$$ you should expect very fine dining and a bill to go with it.
