So glad we FOUND this place! It’s tiny, and we walked past it, even though we we following directions from Trip Advisor. The breakfast was amazing and matched the top billing it received. PS: they don’t take credit cards, but there are ATMs very close...More

Very tiny place packed with people. Do you want to sit at a stool with people crammed in behind you waiting for you to finish eating? No way this place could pass a fire or health inspection. Don't believe the hype. This place is a...More

I was visiting on my own, and based on the reviews had to try this place. It did not disappoint! I visited around 9:30am as I had to get a bus across town to get there, but I must've missed the morning rush as it...More

Best for groups of 3 or less. Not infant/toddler friendly. The space has no tables, just a long bar with about 12? barstools. Those waiting for a seat line up behind you, it's a tight squeeze. The food comes out super fast but I didn't...More

If you’re looking for a hole in the wall dive diner that serves up a great breakfast, then this is your spot. With only about 12 stools available, be there early to snag one or be prepared to wait...which is worth it. Great tasting thick...More

Read the reviews on the great food and decided to give it a try. VERY small place and very dated from the 50's. No tables, about 15 seats at a bar is it. Barely room for people waiting for a seat to stand behind you...More

This was such an experience! There are not very many seats at all and you just stand in line right through the tiny restaurant. We waited and when we got our 4 seats at the counter felt honored. The food was very good. Fun!

It's a dive but worth a one time visit. Food is ave. Bk only/cash only. The employees are great. You have to be prepared to wait an hour. Very old, unique diner.
