Had the clubhouse sandwich with salad and fries. Good choice as it was most filling. Sandwich on challah was a good choice. Ingredients were good. The fries and salad were just enough. Liked the aioli for the fries. Can take a pass on the coffee....More

Iconic old diner in the heart of Roncensvalles. Friendly and personable server, however, she rarely returned to the table to check on the patrons. The food was very good. I had the fried chicken sandwich and my dining partner had the kale salad. The hand...More
