“Wicked Good Breakfast...”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

This is a real, authentic, honest-to-god DINER. Big delicious portions, hot coffee, efficient service and fair prices. If you're one of those anal retentive, namby-pamby closet food critics, driving around in your Bentley looking for a "profoundly moving gourmet experience" in a British tea room setting...look somewhere else. Real people who want real food eat here. Kudos to Fred. The #3 may eventually lead to bypass surgery, but I'm a real fan of this place and highly recommend it.

“Service Review”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

I always enjoyed going there for breakfast. The food is good and the price is even better, but the last couple times I have been there the service has been terrible. One of the waitresses thismorning named Rose brought our food and my step-dad told her he ordered sausage gravy. She told him she only had two hands. None of the staff were friendly the last few times. Sad...

“Great meal every time”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

Wonderful service, coffee cup was never empty. Tons of bacon! Staff was friendly, courteous, and I felt like I was in grandma's kitchen.

“Typical Diner”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Food was very normal for a diner breakfast. Prices were very good. Outside was intimidating but the interior was pleasant enough. Not a bad place.
