Reviewed August 24, 2013

hard to decide because the menu is so big...had pork chops and I had special requests,which was not a problem..Plate came out with a huge amount of food...enough food for 2...Prop Chops were very good...very tasty...
Service was great and my glass was never empty...Music was a little loud...but I dealt with it...they have free wifi..Thanks

“Such a great time at lunch we went back for breakfast”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

You can access this diner through the Peachtree centre but it is easier to find off of Andrew Young International Boulevard. (Between Hooters and Hardrock Cafe) The dark decor and neon lighting downstairs is best suited for their nightly entertainment. Upstairs in the dining area is bright and cheerful.

For lunch, I tried the Spanakopita (Spinach Pie) that came with soup (I chose the lemon chicken) and a greek salad. Big portions and tasty, too. If you can save room, the cakes are enormous but I can't comment on them as we were full each time. Take a peek at them as you walk past.

Breakfast options are plenty and while not a huge amount of food on the very large plate, the cheap price made it very reasonable. Good coffee and it was replenished frequently.

All staff were efficient and friendly, but if you happen to be in Earl's section, you will leave feeling very special.

“Delicious and good atmosphere!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We have eaten here before for breakfast and wanted to try it for dinner. The downstairs lounge/disco was not open yet but they had music and videos playing on the TV screens that we could see from the upstairs diner. It was a nice atmosphere, not too loud. Our server was great. She recommended many items. I had the chicken parm and salad with sweet tea, and my wife had the Greek combination special and sweet tea. When in Georgia, you have to have the sweet tea! Our food was outstanding, though portion sizes were huge. For dessert, we got a slice of chocolate cake to go, to split, and it's good we did because it was 4 layers high! No wonder it cost $6, because it was a slice big enough to split. It was heavenly! Overall, I would eat here again. We plan to eat here anytime we return to Atlanta, we will most certainly be back!

“Just plain good food!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

If you are looking for a little bit of home-cooked food, with a pleasant staff and unhurried atmosphere, this is the place for you. Close to major hotels and open 24 hours.

“Sweeeeet ...”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Right around the corner from the Peachtree MARTA, and Hard Rock. We heard the music outside, dropped in for a late night smash of Oreo cake, ice cream, and a shake. After they rolled us out of there we realized it was a blast. Fun music playing, open 24/7, perfect for busy tourists, locals, or business folk.
