Very good food, excellent service and value for the money. When you drive by you might not stop but once inside an old train car it is homey and comfortable. This is not the first time we have taken advice from diners, drive-ins & dives...More

A sandwich is really good when you call it a "Samitch". Turkey juicy and tender and the Pea Greens with the Cibata bread and sauce made this a great samitch. Prices were very reasonable. In fact, we had a groupon for 20 dollars and had...More

Interesting and historic diner. Spotlessly clean inside. Good but SLOOOW service (I expect the chef..). However, they need to spend a few hundred $s cleaning/ spiffing up the outside. Clearly one of the worst breakfasts we've had in a long time. Breakfast burrito - tortilla...More

As usual for a diner, this place serves breakfast and lunch. For lunch, I ordered a quesadilla. I was told that they were out of cheddar cheese. How can a diner be out of cheddar cheese? So run down the block and go buy some!...More
