Hearty traditional diner. Giant portions. Don’t come hoping for the lite healthy menu. Had meat omelet with hash browns and toast. Friendly quick service. Off street parking a plus. Get there early, fills up, especially on weekends

I went for lunch, ordered a BLT, with soup and a chocolate shake. The BLT with a side was $11.25, That's a little high priced for a sandwich in a diner. The sandwich consisted of a couple thin slices of tomato, one very limp leaf...More
