We decided to eat here after reading the reviews. As expected you order at the counter and paid for your meal then chose a seat. There was ample sitting room the place was dated but very clean and hey what do you expect from a place open since 1945? They don't NEED to make it on appearances the food is most definately what has helped them stand the test of time. Gentleman that took our order was very friendly and talked to us about soccer (which is what we were in town for). The FOOD was marvelous and if I ever visit New Bern again it will be back on my list to visit here again. We fed a family of 4(including 2 teenagers who should count for 4 themselves) for under $40.00 so I have absolutely NOOOOO complaints here!
