This place does not have to simulate the 1950's, it lives it. It is really comfortably old. The food was great, the service was great, and if I didn't live 350 miles away I would probably go there a lot. I recommend the first item...More

This was a great place to go. The interior reminded me of a 60’s diner. We had breakfast, the eggs, pancakes, sausage and bacon, were all good. The best part was the people, very nice and welcoming. We would definitely go back!

We were there for breakfast. Food is typical breakfast offerings. Nicely prepared. Service a bit hit or miss. Our first visit, probably not our last. Setting is just that, knotty pine.

We stop there every time on our way from and to the Shenandoa National Park or to the Pumpkin Patch or the Christmas tree farm with the entire family. This is local, small town soul food at its best. Quaint, old school, not touched since...More

Want a waitress who calls you "hon" along with an interior that was new in the 60's? That's what you'll get. It's not about the food, but the vibe. The breakfast items are best. Look for the daily specials.

We love to eat at non-chain restaurants. This little restaurant is a step back in time with it's oak booths and panelled walls. Our waitress was nice and very efficient. The food was very good. Prices were excellant. Restrooms could use some TLC.
