“Ok”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Went there for an early diner. Service was slow, food just OK. But, the place was overflowing with people outside waiting for a table. Give it a try, they can't all be wrong

“Good place for breakfast”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Judging from the crowds, this must be the most popular breakfast place in town. The menu offers an enormous number of options, all whopping in size. Kind of like a New Jersey diner. Can't go wrong here.

“Great for all meals, not just breakfast and lunch”
Reviewed January 22, 2013 via mobile

You will read the good and excellent reviews for breakfast and lunch but folks underestimate this place at dinner time, like I have since we made this our winter home. We(2 couples) went here for dinner a couple weeks ago and had great service, great food, reasonable prices and NO crowds. The place was not empty, but was not crowded. There was no wait, great specials that were fresh, plentiful, hot and delicious.
Definitely a place to visit other than for breakfast or lunch in order to get the good food with the snowbird crowds. Give them a try, you'll like it.

“Good solid place”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Good food and service. We have been for lunch and breakfast. Both were meals done right. Enough food, cooked good, tasted good and good service. No surprises here. Prices are good. I guess you can tell we thought it was a good place. We would go there again and since were are staying here for a few weeks, I am sure we will. Try it for yourself. You won't be disappointed.
