Open 24 hours of great food. Love Sunday soup day. They have the best cream of chicken rice soup to go. They don't skimp on the rolls crackers or butter. We never have to wait more than 10 to 15 minutes for our food when we dine in. Those of you with children know how important that is. Service makes... More

This "restaurant" could be called a supermarket. Everything we were served was either from frozen food bags, or cans. Four of us ate there for dinner & this is the breakdown: spaghetti sauce from a can, peas from a can, chicken salad from who knows where, ,but it was definitely NOT homemade, french fries from a bag of Ore Ida.

They have a large selection of Greek and American foods as well as excellent breakfast and lunch. All of the food we ordered was delivered promptly and hot. The waitress was delightful. We each...

I am a huge fan of family restaurants. A friend recommended this place; we were both starving. I enjoyed this place, being that I'm from out of town. It is roomy and cozy with a home feel. There is a nice small bar inside to come as an oasis from a hard day's night. The desserts are scrumptious. The menu... More
