The folks here tend to fill your plate - no one goes away hungry, that's for sure. They are most courteous and friendly. I felt like I was coming home! "I'm home dear."

Stopped in for breakfast on the way to an appointment. Was seated quickly and our server and waitress were great! Large omelette and Texas toast along with big home fries made my day!! Will return soon! Highly recommend!

What a gem in Liverpool. One the best breakfasts I have ever had. I love that he accepts concealed permit holders and is to the right politically. He mocks our government and serves awesome food at a very reasonable price.

It is a charming old style diner with incredible service..they really make you feel you are at home! Whats more interesting is that a train may go by too as its right next to a train track...and the food is divine!

Try it, you will love it! Being from the right doesn't hurt either! If truck drivers had a place to park this place would be full of them! TD's always know the best places for breakfast!

My wife and I stumbled upon this diner on our way to Syracuse University. I have to say that it was one of the best burgers that I have ever had. My wife who is picky said the same thing. I wouldn't suggest going here if you are easily offended by right wing extremists. Anti Obama decor is everywhere along... More

I will start this off by saying the staff are friendly and really seem appreciative of your patronage. This is a small but super busy diner. The food options are quite unique such as the rueben and the pot roast omlettes. We loved our breakfast and found the portions to be more than enough. So why am i giving it... More

This unique little place next to the railroad tracks is the best kept secret in the village. It is a "locals" breakfast and lunch go to place. The burgers are huge, fresh, juice and cooked to "YOUR" taste. Toppings galore. Breakfast are terrific. You will never leave hungry and with left overs for later. Typical old town diner fare. It...

Really good food and service. Although we waited a short while it was worth it due to the conversations with the other customers, Great atmosphere.

Pleasantly surprised when I walked in and smelled amazing bacon, sausage, hash browns, and coffee!!! Everyone says hello! Staff are friendly - food is fantastic! Delicious, quick service, and not rushed. When I got the bill I was pleasantly surprised - again - that it was much less than anticipated. Ate our fill and enjoyed every bit. Immaculately clean at...

The Best Breakfast & Lunch served all day every day. From Frettas to Philly Steak sangwiches. The most unique omlette and specialty burger menu anywhere. It's like cheers without the beer. Large quality portions. We encourage legal carry. We also encourage prayer/grace. We talk politics, religion and sports. We don't like PC. Public sector needs to remember they are our subordinates. We did build this business!
