The breakfasts are fantastic and the lunches very good. Service is a bit slow but very friendly. This place has been in business At the same place since 1941. That says a lot about the quality of the food. Worth a stop.

Expect to wait, wait and wait some more. Food is good but not worth the time investment. Building and seating is a major fire hazard. Can't believe the way they pack people in and block aisles.
