Hot coffee, fluffy pancakes and multiple options for eggs make this a great casual,place for breakfast. Chances are good you’ll run into someone you know there, or you’ll make a new friend!

Great food with excellent, friendly service. A mainstay of Winston-Salem for decades, which has led to a successful business.

Burgers were okay...service was very good...fun diner atmosphere. This place has been around for over 60 years, so lots of history. Recommend checking it out when you're in the mood for a diner lunch.

A friend recommended this place for their liver & onions. I don't eat Liver often but the recommendation was glowing. I totally agree. Not a large menu but there is something for everyone.

Any meal of the day, you're as likely to see doctors, lawyers, and bank presidents as you are construction workers and farmers and police officers enjoying this restaurant's fine fare, and warm, welcoming atmosphere. This family owned and operated eatery has been a local favorite...More

A bit of a flashback when you enter as the decor has not been updated in a couple of decades. I know lots of people who love this place but I can't say it's at the top of my list - sorry. Very average overall.
