Lots of vintage signs and even a couple of vintage cars inside make this a memorable stop. The food is served "family style" (at dinner, anyway)--guests choose one main entree (pot roast, chicken friend steak, catfish, etc.) and then additional sides are served family style...More

Best chicken fried chicken I've had in years. Fun 50's kind of vibe to the decor. Southern style home cooking. A must stop in Waco.

Our burgers were great! The waiter was an awesome guy and made good suggestions. Vermacelli salad was awesome. The Key lime and buttermilk pecan pies are to die for. Their pastry chef knows what she's doing and the crust was amazing! Great experience!

We happened by this restaurant. Much to our surprise it wasn't a "tea house". It was an old fashioned diner. We had the best hambergers ever. The motif was a 50'small diner.

Great food, service, and atmosphere! The burgers are the best in town. But the best thing on all is the Homemade Banana Pudding. We try to go several times a month.
