After reading the reviews we expected more. Although the service and staff were great, the food was nothing spectacular.

Open 24 hours! Be sure to look online for the specials the day you are in town. Has some nice twist to all time American favorites. Affordable.

A fun diner, completely cluttered with knick-knacks and diner style. The servers were very patient while we browsed the menu for a very long time.

We got some kid's pancakes and enjoyed the tropical syrup flavors very much. The kid's portion is huge, much to big for a 7 year old, so be prepared to eat some yourself. Husband got the healthy vegetarian option, with some buckwheat pancakes, small omlette, vegetarian sausage. He liked the veg sausage very much, and the platter was a lot of food again. I had the corned beef hash loco moco. While it looked small, it was very filing, and the hash was perfectly crisp. We would go there often if we were locals!

THE local's place for a meal. Try the SUMO"!!!" burger and or pancakes. Open 24/7 and a great place for a midnight snack. Not the best food, but great service and atmosphere :)
