This place is for the local, the lazy or the lost. I was there yesterday with friends and its a nothing special place to grab a bite. The food was ok and the atmosphere is an old building in need of updating.

Meals are large and of decent quality. Diner needs some cleaning. Some things appear to have been missed for a very long time. Light fixtures(and security lights) need cleaning as well as the windowsills etc.
