The food was great. I tried the "sink" omelette, and it was very tasty! The staff was great. They came around often to refill your coffee. There was someone up front doing an excellent job cleaning menus and doors and handles. The dishwasher was even...doing coffee. Seemed that everyone was enjoying their meal.More

Stopped in Elko for the night, this place had high ratings and chose it for breakfast. Good decision! Spouse had eggs diablo and I had corned beef and eggs. Both were served quickly and properly cooked. Also, several times our coffee cups were filled by...every staff member ==> for breakfast this is a must! I would return gladly.More

Friendly service and family-owned. Food was as expected. The order we placed for take-out was accurate!

Unfortunately we did not have a good experience as others have. We chose to pick up our food for take out and everything was jumbled in each box with the kids meal missing the side. The New York steak sandwiches were really tough to eat-basically...a tough piece of steak on a soggy hoagie bun with two fried onion rings on top. I would not recommend.More

Went there for lunch. It is located in downtown Elko. It was very busy but we were seated right away. Our drink order was taken right away. Our waitress was very friendly and intentive to our needs. Our food came quickly and was very tasty....The serving sizes were large and the you get good value for your dollar. This is a true diner and is neat place to visit.More

We were looking for a nice local place for lunch after several hours on the road. All five of us found something that we really enjoyed. French dip, Avocado Club, steak salad, philly cheese steak all were very good. The portions were large and filling....The service was great and we would certainly come back. If you have room the cherry pie was really good.More

Decided to eat here based on ratings. Our food came out in a matter of 5 minutes. I ordered a burger with fries. The burger tasted freezer burnt and the fries were bland and soggy. My husband ordered the prime rib medium-rare. When he got...the prime-rib there was no red or pink in the meat. It looked and tasted like it was day old meat that had been reheated. I would not recommend eating here. The only redeeming quality of this restaurant is the staff. They hostess and waitress were very friendly.More

Visited based on TripAdvisor's score. Disappointed. Restaurant was not busy - more staff than customers. Portion size was small for price. Order of cheese on burrito was maybe 1 oz, not worth a dollar surcharge. Grill was dirty so the only flavor was scorched carbon...."Salsa" was chopped up vegetables only - more like pico de gallo with onion flavor overwhelming everything else. Worst Mexican breakfast this trip, and I have driven cross-country from Miami. Staff were pleasant, however. Restaurant was clean.Quality of product doesn't justify the price.More

Nice little diner type feel. Many locals eating here so that was a good sign. All the meals were reasonable and our waitress was great. Had the Chicken Fried Steak which was very good. Fresh mashed potatoes were good with the gravy. I will go...back if in Elko again.More
