I went in for a late lunch so had no problem waiting for a seat. Special of the day was Chicken and Biscuits which many patrons were eating and looking amazing. They serve breakfast all day, so my daughter was thinking about the Corned Beef Hash. Our server, Rachel, said it is homemade and awesome and one of her favorites. Yes it was! Great menu selections, awesome service and really, really good coffee. I had been curious about the diner for quite a while and will certainly return.

Interesting and Fun atmosphere
good service, but not coordinated. A bit if a delay getting food served with no "it will be here in a minute" courtesy
Incredible menu selections..Breakfast served all day!
Portion sizes vary. A side of fries ordered with a sandwich was very skimpy for the extra $5..so just be aware of this.
Some plates are heaping full take it home for tomorrow size.
Fresh food, good presentation, distinct flavors, and clean. this is probably the cleanest diner I have visited. Even the silverware!
well worth a stop.

Never having eaten in a traditional diner before was already excited from the experience. What wonderful staff wortk here. No shortage of attention. Everything ordered was excellently prepared from the milkshakes to the meal. Loved the meatsauce on the trainwreck asnd will eat there again when back in the area.

Our waitress was friendly, fast and effecient! Our breakfast tasted delicious, and the coffee is the best I ever had. The atmosphere is great, with license plates and memorabilia as cool decor. I look forward to my next meal at this great place!

Food was on the "diner style", but, very good. What made it different, was the service. Not your typical "diner waitress", but a young man who really seemed to care, was attentive and accurate!!!
