Has great breakfast compos but pricing depends on the time of day. Strange, but that way for years.Breakfast compos cannot be beat for the price. Owner recently sold the entire property to a grocery chain, so not sure how long it will be open. Open...More

If you like quick, cheap, homestyle (greasy spoon) type dining, you'll like this place. Our orders were taken within 5 min of arrival and served within 10! Food was not bad but nothing great either. Portions not as big as some suggested but we're adequate....More

Restaurant meets the criteria for a greasy spoon. Would only return if, the eatery is the only one open at late night and didn't want to drive an extra few miles. Have put the restaurant on my not again list. However, I would recommend it...More

The Freeway has been around forever. A great diner. Rustic looks and hasn't been updated in decades but that's part of the classic charm of this place. Best of all, you can not beat the prices. Terrific value for the money!

It's not a 5 star restaurant, please don't expect the food to be great either. It's not a totally bad place, but NOT a great place either. EVERY time that we've been there, one or both of the orders end up messed up. It seems...More

Convenient, just off I-280 on Route 2, across from St. Charles Hospital. Open 24 hours. Staff was very attentive. Very rustic on inside but roast beef piled high with brown gravy and mashed potatoes was superb!
