We stopped here after a medical procedure that required fasting & was starving or close to. Had takeout from here before & knew it was good. Plus word of mouth from friends, coworkers. The food was delicious as before. Had the large breakfast. Perfect. Other patrons food looked great too. Seating is somewhat family style with tables pushed together. Normally... More

I understand the attraction of this restaurant. The there was a lot of food for the money, but it was just okay. I ordered a vegetarian omelette and the mushrooms were clearly from a can. But the tomatoes and onions were fresh. The hash browns were greasy and not brown. Honestly the staff made the place. They were friendly and... More

So, this place has delicious, quality diner style food. It's so good that this place is always crowded with waiting lines out the door. The waitresses are always running...working real hard. If your okay with crowds and are patient, you'll be rewarded with great food.

We went early in the morning, so we were lucky that we did not have to wait in line- I think we got one of the last tables. The crowd seemed to be a lot of locals because everyone seemed to know each other. Our waitress was very friendly and brought our drinks right away. There were quite a few... More

This is the BEST breakfast place in Hampton Roads. Eat here almost every week. I always get the my normal breakfast, with turkey sausage patties.

It's very busy, as I remember from years ago, be prepared to stand in line. They do a good job moving guests in and out but it's a small shop with the same entrance and exit. They serve good meals at a good price for breakfast and you can get anything, even scrapple or steak, we'll try a lunch or... More

Fast service, friendly wait staff, quick table clearing, clean and friendly. Wide variety of breakfast standard choices and daily specials, too. We have only been for breakfast, have heard lunch is good, too.

Good southern food, basic menu, clean, and good service. Prepare to wait in line 15-20 minutes but worth the wait. Friendly people and you'll meet the locals!
