I love the fact that this is a small diner with excellent food. My breakfast was great and my boyfriend loved his french toast! You can have breakfast all day! It was a clean diner with reasonable prices.

Nice hole in the wall diner! We ordered a western omelet and biscuits and gravy. The food was good and you got a lot! Service was just okay. I would eat here again.

5 stars for setting - cool diner straight out of the 1930s. 3 stars for food - potatoes, sausage, and biscuits straight from freezer. Sausage gravy straight from a can. Service is fast and friendly.

We had a late breakfast outside at a picnic table, as we always prefer al fresco whenever possible. Good eggs and sides with reasonable prices. I like the old school interior for winter. We went to a couple stores after and loved talking to the owners at Mathew's Appliance and the hardware store next door to it - the original... More

I, for sure, thought The Donut Shoppe on Keystone was THE Jack Reacher grill, but Peppy Grill now wins that coveted prize. Loved the service, the atmosphere, and the food. This is a must hit spot for me now post-concert in Fountain Square. The vibe from, say, The Hi Fi, just carries over into this adorable little diner. Great value... More

Perhaps Sunday at noon might not be the best time to done especially if you're in a hurry or impatient. After an hour wait our food did arrive and the portions are generous . In contrast to the modest prices. My Western Omelet was light, fluffy and prepared with fresh ingredients. Another favorite that seemed popular is Biscuits and Gravy.... More

An old time diner that has been a neighborhood fixture for at least 60 years. You have to have their fresh cut french fried potatoes or eggs and waffle. Open 24 hours and breakfast anytime

Probably the best diner breakfast for miles. We were amazed by the fluffy biscuits with sausage gravy. The corrned beef hash had a wonderful crusty.

I stopped in here for breakfast after church on a Sunday morning for my first visit here. THE PLACE - Easy to find on Virginia Ave in Fountain Sq. Street parking was easy to get. It's an older restaurant, and I loved the nostalgia. If you're expecting updated seating, paint, etc, this place isn't it. If you like to go... More
