Since my earlier review, I can say I continue to enjoy going here regularly. Usually go for breakfast, and get their weekday breakfast specials, before 11 a.m., for less than five dollars, before beverage. Lunch and dinner are good as well. Clean, tidy, reasonably quiet (except for golden oldies, piped in but not too loud, which we really like). Service... More

Just a great local spot with very good food. You will not notice if you don't go but if you are of the baby boomer set you'll immediately understand.

We went there as a family. Everyone could order something different. Wife Hads eggs Benedict. I had hot dogs with chili. Really good.

I chose this restaurant because it was close to my hotel. I was tired and didn't want to drive far. The restaurant's address is 5605 West Friendly Avenue. It turned out to be an excellent choice! This is southern home style cooking at it's best. They bring you a huge plate over-flowing with food. They make sure your drink is... More

This is my family's favorite diner in Greensboro. Always friendly, always fresh. A little small, but definitely a diner atmosphere. Recommend for breakfast. Great biscuits and gravy.

Stopped in today for breakfast. Staff are very friendly and attentive. I ordered two eggs over easy with smoked sausage. The order came with hash browns, grits and toast. My eggs were cooked as ordered and the rest of the order though basic was well prepared. I ordered coffee to drink and it was quite good. Also, they were quick... More

A diner is a diner - so set expectations accordingly. Not very big and not super clean (but not dirty -they did wipe the table down) I've always been a fan of Jake's Diner and Waffle House (Kernersville 66 location only) but this is now my new favorite. Waitress was great. I had the big carolina breakfast and it was... More
