“Great burgers!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

I tried the fresh ground burgers the first time and haven't tried anything else since. Burgers are big & juicy, served w/ fries. The burgers aren't cheap, but not too pricey either ... about $10 which includes fries. Typical diner - nothing special, but the service is good. They have fresh baked pies, but been too full to try.

“Absolutely awful - worst ribs ever!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

This was one of the worst meals I have ever had. The 'world famous original ribs' were very fatty, greasy and completely lacking in flavour, the St. Louis ribs hardly any better. Even the coleslaw was awful, being coated in some kind of sugary syrup rather than mayo.
If you like soft, tender ribs that have been marinated to be full of flavour then do not go here. The restaurant itself is old and tired, the food over-priced, the service average - despite leaving almost a full plate the waitress didn't even ask if there was a problem.

“Try the Cole Slaw”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Good as always. A little pricey, but the meat is incredible. Everything is smoked on the premises. I had the French Dip with Tri-Tip. Don't forget to try the coleslaw. It's the best.

“Try the pie”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Down home, diner sort of experience. Excellent service from friendly wait staff. I had the coconut cream pie - very good but not exceptional. I had a club sandwitch and fries, which were also quite good. Would not hesitate to eat here again - I've got several more pies to try...

“Outstanding St. Louis ribs”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We've been visiting this place for about 20 years. The St. Louis ribs are just the right tenderness, almost falling off the bone, and I really like the sauce. Most of the food is standard American diner, but they do a good job with meats - barbecue, bacon, sausage patties for breakfast, etc. We go for breakfast a lot: real hash browns, thick bacon, real butter. Service has almost always been the best.
