I liked the fact that the food was non-greasy and tasty. (I thought diners were always greasy!) But the portions were right and plentiful and well prepared. Very attentive waitress, great service!

We went there for late morning weekday breakfast. It was busy, but not frantic. Friendly service, really large portions of tasty, well-cooked food. There were lots of "regulars" there- always a good sign! Prices were reasonable for the area. Easy to get to from I5....More

I have been here twice, both times I have been pleased with the service and definitely the food! Home cooking for sure and enough to take home for meal 2. Really enjoyed being there, have recommended to others.

I enjoy frequenting 'mom and pop' places, non-food chains having original, authentic, homemade meals. I was disappointed in the slow, impersonal service, in the narrow menu and with most of the items originating from a can (soups) or from COSTO (pies). Flavors were disappointing. I'm...More
