Great place for breakfast; OK for lunch; closed after lunch time. Huge pancakes. Traditional, non-vegetarian, high carb breakfast

Prices for this place are awesome. $5.25 for a full,quality breakfast is unheard of these days. The portions are just right. The only reason I didn't give it excellent is because they only take cash.

Owner Bob Doll mans the grill and cranks good, hot food in a restaurant decorated by team photos of his children and grandchildren and nostalgic art of The Big Red Machine. Nice mix of old regulars and college students. Homemade home fries are great.

Located just a short walk from the University of Cincinnati campus, this diner is (apparently) popular with the locals because of its friendly service, above-average food, and inexpensive menu. It's worth a visit if you're in the mood for some good, cheap, diner food.
