Shawn and Meg don't need Guy Fiery to visit make the "big leagues"...they are already there! Absolutely genuine atmosphere - feels like home and the food is already "off the hook". From two seats at "the bar" to large families, there's something for everyone! Great job guys!

Get ready for huge portions, but they are as big on taste as they are in size. This is small restaurant decorated like your grandmother or great-grandmother’s kitchen. Each table is different. I recommend the turkey club that is so big it comes with a steak knife as the toothpick. The homemade bread has a slight kick to it making you want more. Delicious!

First time here but I've been hearing great things for a while. Parking was hard to find, 30 min wait for seats (around noon on a Saturday), and it took longer than I expected to get our food. Oh, but once we got to the food, it was so delicious! The sausage was the best I'd had. Everything was done perfectly. Portions were huge! It was the only meal I ate all day. I'll come back, probably not at such a peak time. Can't wait to bring friends with us.

We waited about 30-45 minutes on a Saturday late morning. It's a retro dive diner with awesome food. Our group had the waffleopolis, Mick toast (French toast coated in Frosted flakes) and the XM Plate. Portions were huge, our server was friendly. Will definitely be returning.

Best homemade breakfast sausage, bread, and rolls, all making for a great meal. The pancake is the size of a pizza. WOW!
