My wife an I have eaten here for dinner twice, and have enjoyed it both times. A fifties style diner ambiance, with good food and very reasonable prices. We haven't been here for breakfast yet, but look forward to trying it soon.

We had breakfast there twice while visiting family in Mechanicsburg. This place has many good breakfast choices at a real value price, and the service was also very good.
