We stopped here for lunch. Daughter ordered chicken and dumplings. Lacked any type of seasonings and the dumplings were just big and bland. Also ordered the chicken gyro sandwhich and a patty melt. The chicken was dry in the gyro and clearly over cooked. So.. Not good. The patty melt might be fine for others but was way to cheesy... More

No doubt, it's as divey as it ever gets. Good hole-in-the-wall diner. Torn blue vinyl seats; brown Formica tables.

I accidentally came across this little diner while out on a business trip in the area. Since I do not like to visit the big chain restaurants I was thrilled to see this little hole in the wall.

Love the fried fish, but I prefer salad to the mac and cheese, there hot turkey dinner is yummy as well. Service seems to vary depending on the time you go, so if you want quick service, I would not suggest going late at night. I have tried quite a few different menu items, salads are quite large, enough for... More

I recently started ordering from this diner because they delivered. I ordered the country fried steak platter. IT WAS THE BEST COUNTRY FRIED STEAK AND GRAVY THAT I HAVE EVER HAD. I had raisin toast with it. It tasted like homemade. I found out they order it from a bakery and it is so delicious. Plus the gravy is homemade... More
