“Wonderful place for any meal”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

This family neighborhood place is known for it's large portions and small prices. The food is great and the service is excellent. Just about any time kyou go there, from breakfast to dinner, you will experience a wait but it is well worth it.

“Small Neighborhood Place”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

My brother brought me here as its one of his favorites and he's lived in the cities a long time.A good choice. Ample,good food and very affordable.Our small group had a variety of entrees which varied from their steaks,too both red sauced and seafood pasta's. Everyone came away satisfied and impressed. They also run specials and that seems to be a big draw also. Its rather small and a cash place and quite busy,but we only had about a 5 minute wait to be seated.Will definitely go back when in the area , even if it means driving an extra half hour to get there.

“Great food, affordable”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

We drive out of our way to eat here - and have done so for about 15 years. With their specials or coupons from their website it is always great food at bargain prices. The portions are very large, the bread and bread sticks are freshly made and you know you are in a family run business.

If we have to wait for a table - it is worth it. Bring CASH. They are proud to keep their prices low and a part of this is not paying credit card fees. Enjoy this special place.

“A lot of great food at a reasonable price!”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Although you might have to wait for a seat (small place), it is definitely worth the short wait! Never, ever disappoints! Breakfast is very popular! If you're in the area, it's a must stop!!

“You Won't Leave Hungry or Broke!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

This is a great neighborhood restaurant. There is almost always a wait for a table on the weekend, but it's worth it. The dining room is a little small, but it has a comfortable, cozy feel. I went there for breakfast about a week ago and had the Sicilian Omelet. It was delicious and all the portions were huge. For 8.99 it included a 3 egg omelet, hash browns and 2 good-sized pancakes. I have a good appetite, but I did not touch the pancakes, choosing to take them home instead. I call that a tremendous value!

I frequently order take-out pizza here. They have a "buy one get one" special where you can take home 2 14" pizzas for under $20! This is always enough for 2 full meals for my family of 4 (including 2 teenage boys!). The pizza is always loaded with cheese (no reason to order extra cheese here), and definitely on the greasy side, but we love it!

As others have said; no credit cards here. Cash or check only (no checks under number 2500).
