Pretty good diner food. I would be going to the trucker rest stop up the road on the highway and getting these guys to come back for some good diner food. And I would be open 24 hours a day

Had to send back the macaroni and cheese as it tasted gritty. Their goulash isnt all that great either.. Fish fry is good. Just be careful what you get if you have never been there.

Food was great, waitress was attentive and pleasant. A trip back in time. Parking lot needs to be paved again but the inside was a bit better.

Used to go here as a child...I'm 50+. Recently returned and was pleasantly surprised. Cozy diner atmosphere with friendly wait staff. Great fish fry and of course everybody loves their Texas Hotdog. Great conversations with wait staff as well as patrons.
