Went here due to the popularity and now that they have moved to a new location and are open later.

The restaurant now in it's new location looks as if it's been there for a while and that's about the only positive I can say.

The food leaves A LOT to be desired. They messed up classic diner style food. The patty melt was dry and tasteless, the tater tots tasted like Ora-Ida frozen. The fries were decent and the chicken strips tasted again like a pre-packaged frozen type.

The employees are polite at least, when they are present. Several customers waited 10-20 minutes to cash out or for service. The food is also a bit pricey for the quality.

A restaurant that serves horribly unhealthy food for ions fits in a place where you can feel the grease on the walls. After moving to the new location in Lakewood it's lost its luster. You might as well just go to Ihop or Denny's.

The service and the Cinnamon rolls are still great but everything else is pretty average.

I had heard so much about this place over the years that I thought I would be blown away, but I wasn't. It was an average place to have breakfast. And I don't mean that as an insult, it was just average. Not bad but certainly not anything I will be actively seeking out in the future.

So excited the mecca moved to my neighborhood. The space is beautiful, the mecca is no longer an old school diner but maybe the transition needs a little more time. Not impressed with the food or service. Will probably wait awhile to see if they get their act together.

Great food, great old-fashioned atmosphere, super service. It's all at the newly relocated Mecca in the heart of Lakewood. We remember the original location on Harry Hines and are so happy they're in our hood now.
