No splashy outside, just a plain Jane diner that looks like it has been there for over thirty years. Well, now I know why. Great did I say great then that is an understatement.

Met friends at this diner for first time. Four of us. Service was fast fast fast with a full diner. Clean overall and waitress was super friendly, no name tag.. :( We sat at the booth near the door, so if Management reads this maybe they know. All of us had the typical breakfast. Served hot on a large platter... More

Ordered Greek Salad with scoop of Chicken Salad. Really good. Huge enough for two to share, we did. Server was efficient, polite, helpful. Pricing is low to moderate. Good Fresh food. Will come back

Great burger deluxe, burgers are fresh with large order of French fries. I like the deluxe burger it's the only place I know that serves it with lettuce & tomato it also comes with sliced cucumbers, which I love on my burgers. Would definitely recommend this diner..
