“Decent”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Had breakfast here. No complaints but nothing spectacular. Food was decently priced, staff was courteous. Would stop again, but wouldn't drive out of the way to go.

“Seems to be a favorite among the locals”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

I don't like the way the tables are laid out. This reminds me of an old diner without seating at the counter. You wait in a line that goes right down the middle of the restaurant. If it's crowded you could end up sitting at those tables right near the line. You walk up and order the food, sit down, the food is delivered and then you wait in the same line after you are finished to pay your bill. The food is prepared very quick, Even the hamburgers. They are very thin similar to a McDonald's regular Hamburger. The food is just average. Seems to be a favorite among the locals.

“Good simple food, strange wait to pay check”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

The food here is fast, but well done. Simple diner fare. You order at the counter "McDonald's style", then your food is brought out to you after you find a seat. Coffee may or may not be refilled, but you can get up and get your own. The one complaint is the strange way you need to go up to pay your check after eating, waiting in line behind everyone who is ordering their meals. When not busy, this is no problem but when a crowd rolls in, it really can be a chore to get your check paid and leave.
