After many meals i have found the food to be great and the service also excellent. The prices such as the full rack of ribs at $12.99 is unbeatable,and their deserts are to die for.

Loved this place after an off-chance visit (literally just passing). Food was really good and plenty of it. Francine, our server, was excellent; friendly, efficient and really chatty. The place had a really nice atmosphere about it and you could tell by how many locals were in that it's somewhere special. Really worth the visit. A proper taste of America.

Even better now that they took Obama's photograph down by register. Made me not want to come. Food remains excellent and service is dizzying fast. Breakfast is always fabulous. A classic

Diners like this used to be everywhere in the USA, now there are only a few left, this is one of them. Classic American home style food, done well. From the egg salad to the meatloaf, the ribs to the cakes & pies, homemade soup everyday, it's all good. Vivian does an outstanding job serving you and brings all the... More

This place was excellent. The staff were charming, the decor traditional retro diner and the food was great - we ordered eggs Benedict and eggs/sausage/homefries. We bought a cake to go as they looked soooo good. And the added treat of s waitress from the East Midlands in the U.K. made us feel even more at home!

This was right down the road from our hotel so we tried it after reading the reviews. Very good breakfast. Certainly better than Dennys or Ihop and the services was great. They were moving a lot of people in and out without rushing the customers. Everything tasted great; perhaps a tad expensive, but not ridiculous. Would not hesitate to do... More

An old fashioned all American diner with a huge menu and big portions. Food is good and prices very reasonable. Nothing on atmosphere but if you want good food affordable this is a great place. I always stop here when in the area.
