We had a delicious meal on a Sunday morning. We arrived just before 11:00 am and had about a 20 minute wait but worth it. We had one of the skillet meals, a specialty waffle, and one of the basic breakfast selection. Everything was very tasty and lots of food. Service was friendly and efficient. We will definitely return and... More

This place is a throwback to the kinds of diners I used to visit as a boy. It may be that old! It has the counter up front and plenty of booths. The food, as others have noted, is really good...not outstanding, but really good. The prices are very reasonable, and the servings are generous. The service is a work... More

My husband and I moved to the area and saw this teeny tiny diner as we were diving on North Avenue. We stopped in for Breakfast on our first visit. We were not disappointed! Our second venture in was a call in order (house work) and they had our food ready when we picked it up. We ordered burgers (beef... More

Best fries ever. Also, love the burgers and pulled pork. Splurge and have a malt-- big enough for two to share. Service is always good and food is delicious "diner fare." Large portions with good prices. Highly recommend.

The line was long but the wait was not. They served Valentine coffee which had great flavor. We had a burger and homemade corned beef hash. Both were well made and full of flavor. The hash had big chunks of pulled corned beef. There was enough leftover for breakfast the next day. A really good choice for breakfast or lunch.

What a great little place! A co-worker recommended we try the Grill for dinner, mainly the fish fry. It was great. My husband enjoyed the fish fry, I had a dinner salad, and we shared the Ruben appetizer, awesome by the way. We will be going back soon!

Wasn't busy. Ate outside. Horrible service, even after telling server we were in a hurry. Food average. Don't eat here unless you have all day to wait.

So glad this diner is in our neighborhood. Exactly what you'd want. Super casual, much-better-than-average diner fare, reasonable prices, much to choose from. The recent expansion has eased the waiting time and the much-needed new bathrooms are appreciated. Seem to have a lot of employees and we've never waited long for our food. One note: I wish they, and other... More
