“Great Diner experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

This was our first stop when we got to Tulare, we were really hungry and this was the diner we found online. The decoration of the place is great, the service and the food. We ordered breakfast and the portions were huge and full of flavor. We liked it so much, we came back the next day for lunch.
