Waitress left with my check and credit card and then starting taking care... More

recently re-opened, seems like they're still going thru opening "jitters". Would prefer smaller portions/less cost, but food was good-seems like it was only choice right in Watsonville if you want American. (Everything else in town is Mexican,Chinese or pizza.

Always offering a value dining special. The quality is typical to what you might expect from a diner but some things will surprise because of its more independent and private ownership.
