“I almost want to give this place a bad review”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

Just to keep folks away! Can be a bit of a line on Saturday and Sunday brunch time, it is a fairly small seating area (maybe 30 people can sit in here at any one time?), and the place appears on first bllush to be run down. But it is well worth every second you wait. The waitstaff and chef\owner are super nice, very "neighborhood" oriented, and HANDS DOWN the best corned beef hash I have ever had. If you want plain old pancakes, this is your place, too. If you want fancy pancakes, go somewhere else. And their lunch menu is tasty, too. I have had the tuna melt and the chicken soup, but I usually stick with the good old corned beef hash. Everything is very well priced. Ask for a corned beef hash omelete for a real treat! Oh, this place is cash only, and they are closed by 3 p.m. or so.

“Great Accident”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

Driving out of Boston on our way to the Adams Historical Site, needed breakfast. This was a wonderful surprise. Very small, few booths, we sat at the counter. Great to watch the cook handle the eggs, bacon etc. Eggs were done just right. My husband really liked the home made hash. They were out of grape nut pudding as was another place we stopped for lunch. Just wasnt out day for the new england desert

“Yummy Greasy Spoon Real Diner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Easy to find, on Hanckock St in North Quincy. The food is served quickly and tastes great. The Staff is Charming and quite talented, we even got the cook to sing with my sister while he was at the grill. Homey, comfy, and delicious meals cooked right in front of you.

“Old-school diner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2012

Nice, old-school diner. The waitresses are always in a hurry because it's always packed.

The corned beef is delish.
