Had a great Lunch with my daughter. Decided to do Breakfast because it looked great on the menu. Very busy place but we were not in a hurry. We were very happy with Pancakes, Bacon and Home fries. You get a lot for the money!...More

My favorite local diner. It's not fancy food, it's good, cheap diner food. $4.95 lunch special can't be beat. Dinner specials are good too.

Burger was good and came with fries and slaw. The slaw was tasty! Meatloaf came with two sides. The house salad is fresh and crisp. Lima beans needed seasoning. Soup was flavorful. Service was good. Price was around $10 a person.
