Went for breakfast and I was pleased with food and service. The omelette was huge. The Belgian waffle were large as well. No issues with a table of six. Will Try again!

My wife and I gave this place a try, after church, and we were not disappointed by the food! Good portions and reasonably priced. The service was lacking a bit, but the place was packed. We’ll definitely be back.

Great food and service. Try the Ruben, the BEST!!!! Their specials are excellent also. One of my favorites is the Chicken Fried Chicken with white gravy, something you don't that often.

Yes, give this a place a try. This is a mom and pop diner. Excellent breakfast. Everything was hot fresh and tasty. The biscuits were large fluffy and tender. To my surprise they had Bloody Mary's. Not the greatest but passable. The staff was friendly...More
