Good food, excellent service, and very reasonable pricing. Family owned business with a very regular family clientele.

We eat here often and have for years. The food and service is always great. They make you feel like family. Food is always plentiful and fresh. Made to order. Daily specials change often. I enjoy the hamburg steak. You can taste how fresh it...More

If you can follow directions, you can find this hidden treasure! And, once you find it, you'll never forget it! This spot is right out of the history books and is setup today like the diners of the 60's and 70's. Nothing swanky, just good...More

Stopped in for breakfast and sat at the counter. A converted house that blends right into the neighborhood. Great food, good portions, friendly staff that made me was feel like I belonged there even though it was my first visit. Will definitely eat here again...More

We ate there over a year ago and I remember very little except that it was difficult to find. The service was good.

Cozy little neighborhood stop with just the best homecooking. Prices and portions can't be beat. Be sure to take the time to look this one up. We stumbled in for breakfast and have returned many many times since.
