The burgers were really good but this place is obviously famous for their milkshakes. My boyfriend enjoyed his chocolate milkshake so much that he drank it all before our meal came. I ordered the limeade with my meal and it was so good I now wish I would have ordered a second one. It's located conveniently inside of the casino... More

We came on a Saturday morning and it was a long wait. When you walk up to the hostess they don't even write your name down so make sure they know you are there and waiting. We ordered chicken noodle soup, mushroom and bacon omelet, 1/2 stack buttermilk pancakes, and corned beef hash. Pancakes came with real maple syrup and... More

This place has a great diner atmosphere. I ordered coffee, a small OJ and "The Famous" breakfast. Coffee was hot, but OJ was tiny, it tasted like Tang and they charged me 3 bucks. I felt a bit violated on that one. Breakfast could have fed 2 people easily. Loads of potatoes and beans, 6 rashers of bacon plus eggs... More

Thanks for joining us while you were in town, Michelle. I'm sorry to hear our generous portion sizes weren't really your thing but it sounds like the food was good just too much for you. I 'm glad you gave us a try, and our door is always open to you if you're ever back in the area. - Frank,... More

Breakfast was great. Service was fast and efficient. We enjoyed it very much. Good fun atmosphere. Right by the casino is open 24hrs. Ran out of time but would have come back for dinner if I had the chance. Good place for casual dining

We've eaten here a few times. Each time we've had something different just so we can try new things. Can't say we've had a bad meal here. The portions are generous. The prices are fair, (remember it's open 24 hours, so you pay a little extra for that). Service is great. There is one waiter there that I have to... More
