Extensive menu, generous portions and terrific comfort food. This is a cut above for its diner type and the food is unusually tasty. Fast service. Free parking thru a valet which is always welcome in this part of town. You can't go wrong

Just loved the 1950 style. Food was great at decent prices. You will love this classic 50’ restaurant.
