went on a sunday morning, was busy. waited about 7 minutes for a table for 6. Not bad. . . place is a bit dirty but I attributed that to their busy-ness. people coming in constantly, not really an opportunity for the workers to "catch-up" and really pay attention to absolute cleanliness. Great variety of options on the menu. I opted for the lox, cream cheese and bagel sandwich. I enjoyed it, wasn't the absolute best i ever had but it was decent especially for the price. definitely a great destination for inexpensive food. will try it again when visiting the area.

This is an old time fixture in Lakeland that all the locals eat at. Great food fast service. The best Rueben and pastrami in town. Great burgers, lots of choices

This place has been a family favorite for 20 years. Breakfast or lunch, the food is fast, plentiful, and delicious. The staff is not friendly, they're like family! And they make you feel right at home. Just don't be surprised if there's a line. It's a big family.

We have eaten here many times since we moved to Lakeland in 1985. The place has never been that clean but on our last visit it looked as if it hadn't been cleaned in months.
We walked out and did not eat there that night and won't be going back..
