Its an old dinner type restaurant, I've came when i was young with my dad, have some good memories. Great thing i like from here are the The Coffee, the hotcakes and red chilaquiles. This are my favorites and my reasons for coming back.

The Service was more than excellent! I had the club Sandwich and my food was served in a timely fashion. The Restaurant has the old style dated decor and it might be the original lunch counter.

Food taste is not that good, they are not doing anything to reinvent the place, not recommend to eat burgers, you can see another burger restaurants.

I had the hamburger for lunch and it was terrible. The bread was like day old bread. The fries were soggy and few. I haven't tried them for breakfast hence a two star rating.

Found a hair in my orange juice and the huevos rancheros was the worst I ever tasted , the sauce they used was a purée of nothing more than tomato and water .,. Nothing else ,no flavor at all. Also flour tortillas were served still raw. Meals are way overpriced, especially with the quality of the food. Plenty of good... More
