Nice little diner! I had Hamburger steak as the lunch special. Was good, service was great. No wait. The diner looked really busy by the parking lot. It is adjacent to Punchy's Tire Service and I think a lot of vehicles must have been from the tire shop.

Old style diner we heard about from fellow speedway campers! The place was packed but we were seated right away. 50's - 60's decor takes you back. Good menu serving breakfast all day. I had the fried fish and fries while the wife had the double cheeseburger and fries. The portions were ample and very good. The fries were the... More
