I have been going to this friendly hometown restaurant for sometime and have never been disappointed with the service, the great hot breakfasts, good unlimited coffee, and large portioned value meals. They are also very accomadating with any menu changes. The food is always fresh and hot!

This is not your most attractive place from the outside but don't let that steer you away. Once inside you will see an older diner with the small town feel. I promise you will leave full. I can eat my fare share and I am more that satisfied with the portion size. The food is FANTASTIC! Treat yourself to a... More

Great local spot. Large portions of food. The people are friendly & answer all questions about the menu. Daily specials everyday. The western omelette was fresh, potatoes & sausage a good choice. A return for sure.

Small, off the beaten track but best home cooking ever. Service is excellent. Big breakfasts. When was the last time you got a burger platter for $6.98? Accommodating to changes. Small town atmosphere.

If you want a lot of food, and a local place this is for you. Food is a but greasy for our taste, but tasted good. Lots of choices n breakfast menu. It's not cheap, moderate prices I would say. Probably not go back.

This is a mom and pop small restaurant that attracts the locals. Homemade food that people stand in line waiting for. The main menu is on a whiteboard on the back wall and at the door. If your looking for a fancy place this is not it, it's an everyday diner where you can see the cook making the food.
