Excellent food at great prices. Went a number of times in the evenings on a recent business trip. Service was excellent and waitress recommended signature dish of Mike High Meatloaf. Perfect comfort food and definitely large portions.

Family trip to the Princeton and found this diner. The food was very good and very plentiful. And inexpensive to boot. The waitress was fast and very pleasant. We left full and happy. We will be back the next time we're in Princeton.

I have the tomahawk breakfast and I have to say well very good it was missing a little something. I'm thinking the chorizo was not spicy enough nor were the jalapenos hot enough. But that is always up to individual taste. The service was superb...More

There is very little to complain about. The food is quick, tasty, and the staff is friendly. Personally, I recommend the club sandwiches.
