Love going to the diner! Food is super affordable, staff is on point with your orders. Love going for breakfast and being able to get lunch at the same time. We often taken a large group of our family and meet up there often.

It was an OK place to eat. We had a hamburger with fries and an omelet with fried green tomatoes. Friendly staff - food was hot and tasty - not home cooked but OK.
