I wanted to visit for years of driving by and finally decided to stop in. I was incredibly disappointed in the food, the wait staff and that the restaurant was dirty.

Our Go To Saturday morning breakfast place, we eat here at least once a week! Yeah the decor is dated, and it's diner food, but its a great value! Recommend the Eggs Benedict, Irish Pancakes, and Monte Cristo. The Burgers are the best in the neighborhood as well. Ask to sit in Trudy's section for excellent service and just the... More

Walking into Shay's on my lunch break one day I felt like I was transported back in time...or back to some small town in the middle of the country. Inside the restaurant you don't feel like you are even near the insanity of Aurora Ave North. The waitress was friendly and the service prompt. My friend and I went specifically... More

There may be an entrance from the south, too. There's one main entrance to the restaurant, with one that looks like a second entrance an "exit... More

Shay's is near my house and I've stopped by for a burger to go a few times. The atmosphere isn't anything special, but the service is always friendly and the burgers are really good. Came in once with my daughter who loved their chili burger. Haven't been for breakfast in a while, but their breakfasts have always been good.

This has been on my list of places to check out for some time. The sign says they are known for their omelets but I had to go a different route. I am a big biscuits and gravy fan and had to try them here. I was somewhat disappointed as the biscuits seemed to have a tinny undertone like a... More

too many 'big box' cookie cutter breakfast spots-this is the real thing-locals only, monte cristo sandwiches, waitresses that call you 'honey'
