Found this place on thrillist Best late night eats in every American city. Was here about 10 pm not to late. Had a order for biscuits and gravy with a side of hash browns. Also a cheeseburger just because I could. The food was very good. Gravy was a little thin but tasty. Loved being able to watch the cook... More

In the midst of a lot of trendy restaurants is this little gem of a diner. We went for breakfast on a Sunday morning, and we were seated right away. Unfortunately, while we were seated and given our beverages, our omelets came almost an hour later, with no coffee refills in between. The food was excellent and worth waiting for--good... More

Not a bad place. No pretense of being a gourmet spot. If you need some down home transfat slathered with high fructose corn syrup this is as good as any.

I love the fact that this is a small diner with excellent food. My breakfast was great and my boyfriend loved his french toast! You can have breakfast all day! It was a clean diner with reasonable prices.

Nice hole in the wall diner! We ordered a western omelet and biscuits and gravy. The food was good and you got a lot! Service was just okay. I would eat here again.

5 stars for setting - cool diner straight out of the 1930s. 3 stars for food - potatoes, sausage, and biscuits straight from freezer. Sausage gravy straight from a can. Service is fast and friendly.

We had a late breakfast outside at a picnic table, as we always prefer al fresco whenever possible. Good eggs and sides with reasonable prices. I like the old school interior for winter. We went to a couple stores after and loved talking to the owners at Mathew's Appliance and the hardware store next door to it - the original... More

I, for sure, thought The Donut Shoppe on Keystone was THE Jack Reacher grill, but Peppy Grill now wins that coveted prize. Loved the service, the atmosphere, and the food. This is a must hit spot for me now post-concert in Fountain Square. The vibe from, say, The Hi Fi, just carries over into this adorable little diner. Great value... More

Perhaps Sunday at noon might not be the best time to done especially if you're in a hurry or impatient. After an hour wait our food did arrive and the portions are generous . In contrast to the modest prices. My Western Omelet was light, fluffy and prepared with fresh ingredients. Another favorite that seemed popular is Biscuits and Gravy.... More
