We had ventured off of the parkway to have a meal and some hot coffee after battling traffic from NYC. We were seated and our order was taken promptly. The menu was affordable and diverse. We received our food quickly and all looked very promising. However, upon tasting the ham steak we ordered, it seemed that it was "off" either... More

My family have been coming to this iconic diner since 1969. The price value and food quality can't be beat. The soups, sandwiches and desserts are are spectacular.

I visited this restaurant for breakfast. Typical diner food and ambience. From what i could remember the service was mediocre. I wouldn't run back, but i would not say that i wouldn't visit again.

I visited this restaurant for breakfast as I was in town for the weekend and could afford to chill. The food was good and the ambience of the place was good, didn't like much the fact that it was on a rather busy road though (I guess, that has nothing to do with the proprietors)... usually, I like the waiters...

Not much to rave about or knock for that manner. Prices are moderate. They do serve "grits" for those of you who want grits with your breakfast. Lunch is not that much of a bargain. My friend had a turkey burger (she gets them often) and said it was tasteless. I had a sandwich called "the mess", which is basically... More

I went for a quick and easy Sunday lunch, but ended up getting more than I expected. First, the place has ample parking, and then it's rather nice inside -- a step up from my usual places that I enjoy, but still casual and inviting. My food was great -- Moussaka with Greek salad, which was tasty and quite a... More
