Busy place, despite the extremely cold, icy weather. Husband and I both like our meals. Waitress looked gruff, but was very friendly. Cashier was friendly and a little chatty. Walking distance from our motel, the Quality Inn.

Large group dinner - people raved about Chicken Parm - nice crunchy breading. Extras included (soup, salad). Great burger ("Breakfast" version with fried eggs). Made me "rodeo" fries with gravy and melted cheese. Nice friendly neighborhood place.
