We had eaten something non-traditional for Christmas and the day after we stopped here. The turkey, stuffing and gravy platter sounded good to me. Started with a salad so brown, rusty, and wilted...and stopped picking the icky pieces out and sent it back for a cup of matzoh ball soup. It was great but took a long time and was a bowl...a bit much. About the time you'd expect the main course to come out, the waitress let us know they hard almost no fish, including the one my husband ordered. Our meals came. His orange roughy looked pretty good. My turkey platter was a pile of stuff hidden under a giant blob of yellow gravy that went out in a gelatinous jiggle to the plate's edge. Under the mass was freezer-burned (or nucleated) pieces of turkey, some okay pieces and the stuffing looked like it was already digested by...hmmm....maybe that gravy blob? I don't think we'll be taking that detour anymore.

I read good reviews of this place so my boyfriend and I tried it out. Coffee and drinks came out quick anf waitstaff is wonderful. It is a small diner but Guy Fieri's must not have taste buds. The syrup has such a plain taste (maybe sugar free), his bacon wasn't cooked all the way, the hashbrowns reminded me of eating mashed potatoes ( I also like crunchy hashbrowns). Pancakes are small but filling.

Will not come back.

This diner had been here for eons! The food selections are limited, but good. AT three-thirty in the afternoon on a weekday it was 50% full.

People of all ages seemed to come in. Sounded like "regulars" and a few others just stopping in. The staff welcomed everyone, and the service was quick and thoughtful.

Smallish diner, located on route 33 in the Hightstown business main street. Is a nice pleased to eat.

Used to come here and recently visited after 2 years.
Sadly has lacked investment and while food is still just about OK the decor is getting tatty and there were some hygiene issues

My husband and I have tried many diners in the area and have only found two we like and this is one of them. We now go fairly regularly for breakfast as we both can easily find item we are in the mood for. Fast, friendly, and clean. Can get very busy. Very reasonable prices. I would recommend.
