Love their home cooked style menu. Pies included. My favorite is their open faced beef sandwich topped off with their great coffee and pie

Our waitress seated us with a bright smile and great suggestions for our breakfast. The diner is filled with locals that make the place fill right at home. The huge burger and fries were cooked perfect and hand made. The egg omelet was bright yellow with perfect cooked vegetables. A simple diner that makes you smile with pride of eating... More

A Great hamburger steak dinner. Nice friendly help and even salad bar, but I missed it because I was late. Nice family style restaurant in old town Covington. Parking a little tight, but food is good.

Chicken is as good as it gets.if you get it fresh,,After the oil has been changed..other than that it's typical diner food..Watered down chili on the hotdogs and such...Breakfast ain't bad..Place needs a good cleaning..A locals hangout...Better options in Covington if you look.

Service is awful. They're very slow and often rude. The food is decent if you get there for breakfast. Dinner is okay, they have decent desserts.

Small local establishment. Great service, food was average, not horrible but nothing special. It is old and dirty looking, but again, it's a small local restaurant. Had lunch there and was expecting a grilled chicken sandwich but it came fried. It was average. I didn't try the friend chicken but it smelled great and there were several people coming in... More

You pay for what you get. There one hard-working waitress there she gets my props. The food is fair not bad, not terrible. The place is very dirty though it needs the seats and chair fixed. The sign looks really torn up and rough.

Get fried chicken to go, it is good. Country fried steak sandwich is good as well. Pass on the sides. Agree with other reviews, place needs to be cleaned.

Had breakfast here. Took 20mins to be waited on.Was never offered refills. Waitress taking about personal stuff with customers instead of doing her job. Would not recommend EVER EATING HERE.

We have eaten here many times in the past but were dissapointed this time. There were only a few other customers but our breakfast was quite cold - eggs, bacon and biskets. They offered to warm it but scrambled eggs do not do well in a microwave and they already tasted like they had been wrarmed over once. The bisket... More
