The place is CASH ONLY!! However, there is an ATM onsite. Now, the service and food are excellent. Get there early as parking is limited.

Great American traditions, served deliciously by friendly staff. It's a busy place, and it can get noisy, but the food is great, the attitude is better, and it's fun, and very trendy.

I had an omelet that was very good. My co-worker had a southwest breakfast dish. The food was good, we arrived at 7:30 and the noise level was quiet/good for a discussion. The only drawback was that it only accepts cash (ATM is available). Otherwise,...More
