Service by AmyBB was excellent. Quality of food was okay. My BBQ chicken salad had mostly Iceberg lettuce. i didn’t know that the onions would be fried rings. My husbands Turkey Sandwich meal was all white in color. Could have used some colorful vegetables, too.

The diner is in the process of remodeling and is serving pretty much sandwiches only. I had a cheeseburger and my wife had a French-dip. Kinda pricey. With two drinks and a tip came to $22.00. Quality of the food was good. Was not impressed...More

We had breakfast one morning, it was ok but not good enough to get us back for a second time. The building needs much attention and the food needs a little loving care added.

Response from HavocDog | Reviewed this property |
I highly doubt it due to the small, cramped nature of the place. Very difficult to maneuver around and through the tables/chairs. Not much space for a dog to sit/lay. It is pretty tight. But the food is good!
