This place is an institution but not worth a trip out of the way. Summit Co only has about 7 places for breakfast and this is the greasy spoon wide spot in the road. Good food for the price. A bit grungy but some folks...More

Surprised they weren't packed, just hit a small gap in the next wave of people. Still my favorite breakfast place. Had the ultimate skillet, outstanding as usual. My wife swears their green chili is the best she has ever had.

This place is a dump. Our table was dirty. My pancakes had no flavor and the syrup was cold, which made the flavorless pancakes cold. Very small, old and dirty. Advertised as a diner, but not diner prices!

If you are looking for good hangover food than this is the place. The menu doesn’t have many healthy options but the service is good and food comes out quickly. My children love the pancakes.

Ate there Dec 26, 2017. Decided to go there because everytime we went by, they were busy so I assumed if busy, then must be good. Got there at 12/noon and had to wait 15 minutes to get a table as they were busy. WORTH...More
