We used to eat here when we lived in Fort Worth and always visit at least once every time we come back. The food, service and friendliness hasn't changed - still the best.

The decor is straight 50's road-side diner. Staff is friendly, food is hearty and affordable, a good value for your money. The pancakes are superb, and they have sugar-free syrup for diabetics.

The German pancake is delicious! We have been coming here since our son started at TCU in 2002. Just good old country cooking. Cinnamon rolls, biscuits and gravy, ham and eggs this trip. Good old American food

For Saturday or Sunday breakfasts be sure to get there early. This is the meet/eat spot for so many in Fort Worth - cowboys (real ones), college kids (TCU) and parents, motorcycle groups, cycling clubs - you get the idea! - Their bacon is delicious and a side order is quite large. This is my destination for Dutch Babies, the... More

Plenty to choose from on the menu. I opted for the steak and eggs! Steak was pretty good although it was a little tough. The eggs were on point. Service was pretty good but our waiter got a little distracted because of some large parties that came in. However, he was very understanding that we were just sitting and visiting.... More

We were on our way to Stockyards (we're from the UK) and saw the reviews on Trip Advisor. We stopped and the place was so busy but Jacque, our server, was just great. We had biscuits and gravy and the pancakes. Fantastic place, great food and friendly staff. Wish we had one of these in the UK!
