“Ok diner food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Nothing to write home about, had a waffle, 2 eggs and 3 strips of bacon with a side of toast and ham

Ordered the eggs soft poached , came semi hard, bacon thin sliced with the rind still on it, exploding crisp

Had a coffee all for $18 with tip $20,

“Should be ranked much higer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Flash back to 50's style diner, complete with decor, portion size and menu options. You won't leave hungry! Breakfast is especially amazing, with waffles and egg dishes that are piled high and packed with flavor.

Seating is limited and sometimes it can get loud. Small staff means you sometimes have to wait, but it's worth it.

Come hungry, leave happy.

“Old time diner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is the original diner - hearty food, basic menu, take out or eat in. Lots of interesting nostalgia, old signage, booths or counter stools. The food is usually good, but not always consistent (depends on who is cooking?). Prices have gone up a bit, but are still reasonable. They still make real, old-fashioned milk shakes.

“Typical greasy spoon”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

Was hoping for something a bit more unique and interesting. Although there are some weird menu items such as peanut butter burger, the quality was just greasy spoon.

Neat joint inside. The best part of the lunch for sure was the decor.

“Not impressed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

Deluxe cheeseburger was overcooked and tough, lettuce was barely there and wilted, tomato was runny. Not too many fries (they looked and tasted frozen). Waitress never smiled and did not check on us at all through the meal and I really wanted a refill on my pop. Seating at the tables is cramped and uncomfortable. Disappointed and I will not be going back.
