I got country ham, eggs, and potatoes. Absolutely delicious. Apparently Gus Burgers are the fan favorite, but I just couldn't eat it for breakfast. This place is very rich in history and old-time looking.

Yummy classic "hole-in-the-wall" counter service diner. The gal who recommended it at the hotel we stayed said she was headed there for a cheeseburger when she got off work:)...The guys that work this place are great. Super friendly and welcoming. Good, quick breakfast.
