“Good food.”
Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

Great if you just want some diner style food. Have the option of western style stuff( like burgers and sandwiches) and then also Chinese dishes like chow mein. Their burgers are great and the lady that runs it is lovely and friendly!

“Diner food, nothing more, nothing less.”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

Perfect greasy spoon breakfast. Nothing fancy, and not the kind of food you'd want to eat every day, but good for what it is. Coffee sucked, though.

“Great dinner just off downtown”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

Diner has a very friendly owner who seems to genuinely care about customers. The food is great and the prices are reasonable. Cons: Closes early.

“A Nice Down-Home Refuge”
Reviewed December 25, 2011

Casual, family-style restaurants that open early or that have otherwise extended hours are usually hard to find in the downtown areas of big cities. So I was happy to see this place across the street from my hotel. I often chose it over the rather sparse, crowded continental breakfast offered at my hotel. The "Smile" has good hearty fair, including a wide selection of omelettes and some Chinese dishes at good prices.
There are a number of smiley balloons around the place, bobbing their big grins at you as you eat. This can almost be just a trifle creepy. But I got used to it, and all the sunny grins, the bottomless coffee, and the home-style cooking soon put a smile on my face.
