“Rated waaaay too high!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

My husband and I enjoy stopping at 50s/60s diners so this place caught my eye. The reviews here are so positive but I have no idea why. We saw the big sign outside that said "diner" so we pulled in but as soon as we did I thought perhaps we had the wrong place. The place looks so run down! There was some kind of hanging screen on the front door. We were greeted outside and asked if we wanted to sit outside on one of the two picnic tables on the porch. I immediately said yes because I did not even want to go inside. The waiter was very frendly and the menu looked really fun so we ordered. My husband went inside to see if it looked nicer inside than out. It was dingy and had a few things on the wall but did not look as nice as the picture her. Each meal came out separately so mine sat getting cold while I waited for my husband's to come out. The burgers and fries were so greasy! The waffle fries were greasy all the way through. We couldn't finish our meals. We even decided to pay with cash so that we did not give this place our credit card number. Never again.

“Good food but not much of it.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

We stopped for a Sunday morning breakfast and ordered a ham & cheese omelette and the Johnny Cash corned beef hash. If you had combined our plate's red skin potato portions it would have been the size of a dollar. The hash was the size of a four inch pancake and just as thin. We watched the table next to us get a nice size order of spuds. We didn't complain but next time we'll ask for MORE deliciousness.
