I'll start off with the quality of my food and my friends food that we ordered. We both got an appetizer, main meal, and dessert. As you can guess from the other reviews, we stayed here for quite some time. Also, we ate it all because we're fat Americans. My friend, Jeffery, ordered the nachos, Swiss burger, and chocolate cake.... More

Dear David S., we are very sorry for what went wrong during your stay. Of course we are not a fast food restaurant, all dishes are freshly prepared and that can take some time. But nevertheless the waiting time cannot be that long. We will talk about this aspect with our team and try even harder to improve ourselves. We... More

I haven't tried lunch or diner. Only visited to fill a craving for breakfast food. They have a few different breakfast option to choose from but don't go here with IHOP, Denny's or Waffle House in mind.

My family & I have dined in for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu is full of amazing food, and I believe all items are decently priced. We've always experienced good customer service each and every time. And the best part, this is one of the few restaurants open on a Sunday in the area! I would definitely recommend this... More

Probably the closest you'll get to an American breakfast while living in Kaiserslautern. I love their lunch menu as well. The service is great and it gives me a sense of being home. Good burgers and decent pancakes.

We really enjoyed our food once it finally came. I wrongly assumed a diner would have fast service. After nearly an hour waiting, we had to take our food to go. This is somewhat disappointing since an authentic American diner is not easy to find in Germany.
