A fine chicken fried steak with sides and to top it off an old-fashioned milk shake - this sums up to throwback experience - formica table tops and all - great diner food and great fun.

Good food and good value. The Jukebox is really loud and should be able to be adjusted. Not everyone likes loud music at breakfast. Try the Corned beef hash!

Went for breakfast. Staff was friendly and coffe came out immediately and was good. Ordered eggs with home fries and a side of pancakes. Eggs were ok, as well as the pancakes. Home fries were pored out of a bag and not even seasoned. No onions or anything with them? The inside was clean but dated. Will try someplace else... More

There are not many options for late dinner in this area so it was a default. Space is nice for diner lovers ( and we are) , waitress was very nice and efficient and the fries were very good. Unfortunately the rest of the food we had was nothing anyone of us wants to remember.

Stopped at the dinner because usually a diner is a safe bet. The food was so bland even salt couldn't save it. My son had the Mac and cheese and it was more like wallpaper paste without the flavoring. The waitstaff seemed bored and it took about 15 minutes and asking twice to get a root beer. Maybe it was...

Feel like you are inside an old fashioned diner....The service was not particularly great but the food was good old fashioned cooking. Seems they like the locals and only tolerate visitors but we go back for the food and expect service to be soso...the young waitresses are terrible, talking to locals, and catering to them but the seasoned waitresses treat...

This diner shows a lot of wear and tear. Holes in the seat cushions are patched with duct tape. Tables have numerous nicks and dings. Some of the dropped ceiling tiles are warped and discolored in places. The staff does keep the place clean, but the place needs a makeover badly. We seated ourselves at a table toward the restrooms.... More

Food hit the spot so I did not have to go to sleep on an empty belly. The atmosphere was ancient to the 60's. Can't run anywhere else its too far, but it turned out nice and convenient. I loved the clock

Four of us ladies pulled in to the parking lot around 9:00pm on a Thursday night not knowing what to expect. The lights inside were inviting. Our waitress was friendly and the restaurant was clean. There are table jukeboxes at each booth and desserts displayed temptingly in a case. The ladies room included a shower in a separate area. The... More

In my Experience Diners are usually a hit or miss and this was more of a truck stop then a diner and excuse the pun but I would recommend to keep on trucking. I will lost below the pros and cons about this place Pros the Diner look's like it came right from the 1960's and it was awesome looking... More
