Decent little place. Clean, quiet, respectful. The waitress (jeaneatte) took good care of me - she was wonderful. The wait was very short to get a table and to get my food. I was dining on a budget (we have all been there lol) and had a BLT with a side of fries and a pot of coffee for 10.95$.... More

This is a diner. That said, it also is clean, welcoming, and affordable. The waitress was attentive and friendly. The food runs from a full breakfast menu to liver & onions and tuna melts. I actually had the tuna melt - nicely toasted on sour dough bread, not greasy or fishy. The soup was cheesy potato bacon - thick, mildly... More

Sometimes you need to just avoid the Brand Restaurants and find a solid local place to eat. This is it. You are not paying for their national advertising campaign.

Dinner at this restaurant was a good, but not great experience. The food was a bit better than average, and prices decent. The service wasn't bad either, but again, nothing out of the ordinary. The building and fixtures are in need of some TLC, as the entire place feels kind of old and tired.

Stopped in here on a recent trip to Spokane, could not get my TripAdvisor App to give me the best place for breakfast, so I tried my second choice recommender... My brother. Well, I gotta say, TripAdvisor (and all the submitters) provide a more thorough guide on where to eat or not. This place was good, older, but very clean,... More

We stopped here because most restaurants near the hotel was crowded. The name of the place caught our attention. This place is a mom & pop restaurant. The inside is worn and needs attention but the warmth you receive makes up for decor. They have doodles of children's drawings hanging around the place that makes you know its a homey... More

The menu at this restaurant (which doesn't really look like much from the outside) is so large that if you can't find anything, you aren't trying at all. The sign is huge and it prompted me to suggest eating there. We were lucky to be staying, quite literally, a block away, so we walked from our hotel to have dinner... More

Well this place is just nasty looking, old, worn out and it desperate need of updating! I mean everything needs updating from the plates to the silverware to the glasses, floors, paint, building , landscaping, etc , etc. The manager though rocks! Super nice lady and the new waitress we had for our party of 11 was very sweet and... More

Went here with my family. Very filling. Meatloaf sandwich and burgers were pretty good. Liver and onions left grandma dissapointed, Service was excellent.
