Good Food if you stay to the basic diner food. Don't go for dishes like Seafood or Italian. Good breakfast and sandwiches. Good Prices. I tend to favor their open hot sandwich's. Best but for the money.. .

Went there in anticipation of the recommended "homemade" corned beef hash as per Guy of Foodnetwork. When I finally get it after most of my other food was done being eaten, it was mushy, salty, and tasted like the same old canned stuff everyone else...More

My husband and I stopped here for lunch. For a diner, the wait for the food was rather long. My husband ordered eggs, scrapple and toast. His food was bland. I ordered the lunch special, lasagne, with a salad. The salad turned out to be...More
