5 of us ate here. There was a good variety of food to choose from. My dad ordered Italian food. My mom the special I believe it was meatloaf. My boys a hamburger and chicken fingers. I ordered a salad. It was all delicious. They have buttermilk dressing, which may seem like no biggie.... but it's an added bonus for... More

8:20 am on a Saturday, and I walk into probably the largest number of people that I've ever seen here. Two servers working hard and barely keeping up with the crowd. I ordered one of the combos. Three eggs, Canadian bacon, home fries, toast and coffee, $6.99. It took over 30 minutes to get served and the food wasn't really... More

Had ham and eggs. Ham was a ham loaf, not very good. Potatoes ok, not great. Eggs were as ordered. OJ was generic-watered down and little flavor. Staff was very friendly. Would not go back.

A friend recommended this restaurant to us and we weren't disappointed. I had one of the breakfast specials and was very satisfied with the food and service.

With their 50's Rock and Roll theme it's an interesting place to visit, but not on a regular basis. The food is diner quick and diner greasy.

Sunday/9am: Greeted by the waitress who showed us to our choice of tables. She quickly brought us each a mug of coffee and menus. All egg breakfasts are served with home-fried-potatos. My wife ordered a mushroom omelet (all omelets are 3 eggs). She said it was ok. I orders two scrambled eggs (cooked "very easy") with sausage links. There were... More

Went on a Sat afternoon after shopping all day. First time visiting this facility. Decor is remodeled Burger King. Clean, but not fancy. Service was good, friendly and food was great. Not fancy but flavorful.

You won't go away hungry, there is plenty of food at a reasonable price. Erin was our server and she was one of the best I've seen, very attentive and always smiling. We look forward to returning again.

Stopped by on my way in to Wright Pat AFB and was pleasantly surprised. Reminded me of the old school breakfast joints that I went to as a kid. Hearty breakfast with good service for a solid value. Solid daily lunch specials as well.
