An old time diner with a juke box and friendly service. My French Dip looked small when it arrived, but it was filling and the sweet onions adds to the flavor. They make the roast beef in house and Pop’s lay on the slices. It...More

Ordered takeout sandwiches and sides. The sandwiches were okay and had lots of meat. The fries were okay. The tater tots were homemade and looked like hush puppies. Overall, it was a decent quick meal.

Went to restaurant for a late lunch. Menu has sandwiches, and burgers. We ordered a burger, Philly cheesesteak sandwich and the chicken finger sandwich. Food tasted okay, but they did not come with fries, had to order a side of fries. Service was good.
