October, 2018. My wife and I stopped by for lunch. Tracy promptly served a Tuna Salad Sandwich, Tater Tots, and a Meatloaf Sandwich. Delicious! As the Germans say in Heidelberg, "Mittagessen war lecker!" Lunch was tasty! Good food and prompt service. Danke, thank you!

Well we ate here again (a lot) and again were impressed. If you wand good food at reasonable prices this is your place. Chelsea may be the best waitress I've seen in a long time.

Typical Greek diner menu, huge variety, breakfast all day, and plenty of food covering the platters. Usually some to take home too! Willing to make the small changes per customer request = better dining experience.

Service was friendly. Food quality was average, nothing special. Price for what we ate leaned toward too much. Don't think we'll eat here again.
