Stopped here for dinner on the way down south. My husband & I split the Cobb salad and a burger. The salad was fantastic! Really fresh greens and veggies, real turkey, packed full of goodies and huge. We should have ordered the half as opposed the the full size. The burger was pretty average! Certainly not bad - just not... More

This a local place that most people go to eat. The food is good and service varies depending on whom waits on you. They have daily specials that are reasonable. Sunday's can get crowded after church.

It is in the same ballpark as Denny's or any of those other not so fancy breakfast restaurants. A-Town is crowded, which is a good problem to have. Once you are seated, service is pretty fast, but they like a high turn over. Food was basic, nothing special. Staff was nice. I went with a few other people, and I... More

We went here last Sunday for lunch with some friends. The food was good, I had a turkey burger and it was very good. The service was slowish with regard to getting the food on the table. Not the fault of the waitress. It also seems a bit pricy for what is offered.

Lots of Automobilia on the walls. Cute red vinyl with B&W checkers everywhere. Classic Diner food with a few twists. Yummy Shakes. Sizeable portions. Run, don't walk overf there for the Carne Asada Fries, which I always ask to have with Sweet potato fries. This is a spectacular and colorful dish which everyone can eat. If you want Pastrami -...

We had a last Hooray of the summer dinner. I had the Rueben sandwich and loved it. It was too big to pick up and eat. I ate it with my fork. The fries were a little hard. The shakes were my favorite. I had the Mocha Madness for dessert and took it to go. Kids eat free with a... More

These guys have a great menu at a very affordable rate! $5 for a budget cheese burger. We had the chicken sandwich, zucchini sticks, and a steak sandwich. It was great. The atmosphere is like and old diner.

We tried the Chef and Cobb salads and they were excellent! The service was fast and friendly! They also offer nightly specials - Thursday barbecue ribs, chicken, or Tri-tip, Friday fish, Saturday prime rib - can't remember the other days, but I think they all sounded good! Will definitely visit again while we're here!

Thank ZMiche
