Love the steak and eggs. This is a great place to bet a piece on Americana. You will not be disappointed.

“Sad for what it could be.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2012

This is a classic Diner built in 1957 and transported by rail to its present position on Colfax Ave in Lakewood CO. Unfortunately it is showing its age and not being treated with the loving care it so much deserves. The breakfast was great and was served up as quick as you would expect in a diner, but the worn appearance detracts greatly from all it could be. This is a classic and appears to be in fine structural shape. With just a little cleaning and paint it could be returned to its glory days. This is a piece of history that deserves to be saved for future generations. I hope the owners and management realize what potential it has.

“good hole in the wall breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2012

i eat here all the time for breakfast - super fast service, nothing fancy, just good food - but it is diner food. I LOVE the pork green chile on the burrito. If you are expecting chain breakfast, you aren't going to get it here. Everything is made to order, so you can adjust what you want. some good greasy spoon options (like biscuits and gravy) as well as good omelets chalk full of veggies and meat. I love the place and choose it over all the other places on colfax and around this area of lakewood/denver.

“A blast from the past with the prices to match”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2012

This cool little diner is like going back in time, and is even on the National Register for Historic Places. The outside is stainless steel, the Formica tables inside are original and some of the waitresses have been there for decades. They serve great big breakfasts breakfasts, juicy burgers and really good shakes.

This place is an excellent value, and 2 people can eat here for under $20.
