This well-located diner doesn’t deserve any more business than it has, and should be grateful for what it gets! Despite a change of ownership, its mediocrity continues, serving passable food as if it didn’t really want to please. Keep driving!More

We did not prefer this diner. Booths were cramped. Service was relatively slow. It was okay. They gave you juice with your breakfast, while other diners don’t do this. We preferred another diner nearby.
