Our kids love old time diners. No Grandma here. Rude server. We did not even stay. Avoid! Out of French fries at lunch?? No idea any details of lunch special?? Avoid!

Have had breakfast here several times and the service is always fast and friendly and the food is very good! It's a family run business, which is very nice, and 'The Mexican Breakfast' is one of my favorites and is only made by Grandma!

Had breakfast dishes around 1 p.m. My bacon was crisp and delicious but the scrambles eggs were way overdone. My wife's cheese omelet was outstanding. Coffee was from the local Black Dog Coffee shop and delicious.

Just a counter and a few tables but excellent comfort food. Mexican Restaurant disguised as an American diner. Try Grandma's green salsa...hot and excellent.

Passing thru Charles Town looking for a small place for lunch. Spotted this place and was not disappointed. We are not big eaters so a couple of burgers were perfect for us. And they were excellent! Great wait staff and you could tell this place was well frequented by the locals as the staff knew the names of lots of... More

My wife and I went in last Sunday to a packed house. At first we were not sure if we should stay but the staff made us feel welcome and pointed us to a table in the back. First a very nice mug of coffee and Grandma was a riot. We laughed with her as she was messing with a... More

Maybe I hit the place on a bad day. Maybe the mgmt has changed. I know the front window art is different than the 2012 pictures. Don't get me wrong, the service was fine, but the table ware was pre packaged, the orange juice was a bottle of minute maid poured into a plastic to go cup with straw. I... More

We went here for breakfast 2 days in a row because it was so good! I love a big country breakfast. The service was quick and the meal was tasty

First -- a wonderful cup of coffee. That goes a long way toward making breakfast worthwhile. Very much a family atmosphere, friendly staff, and very reasonable prices. (I don't like this site's choice of "cheap, mid-range and fine" as "cheap" implies McDonalds or Wendys, but the prices are below mid-range.) Have not tried them, but reports from friends are that...
