Nice diner type spot that is a piece of local history. The counter is a classic that brings back the fifties.

We shrieked with delight; this is like entering the Fonz's home. A big, icy chocolate milkshake arrived in a iced metal mixer, to attempt to pour into a plastic cup... More

We recently had breakfast here. They have a pretty normal breakfast menu. Coffee and food were so-so. My home-fries were completely charred, but everything else was fine. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Stopped in for breakfast and saw everyone but Andy and Aunt Bea. The service was great and friendly. The food came out quick and was good. Definitely a local go to place. The waitress knew everyone coming in and what they wanted to eat. Good experience.

Ate in there one time, ordered fried chicken. It came out hot on the outside but frozen in the middle, never went back.
