In Alabama for work and needed a good breakfast place, well found one. This diner has the best omelet for the price and it is on the table super fast. My coffee cup was never empty and the staff was fast and courteous. Try the biscuits.....they are great.

This place has a awesome atmosphere and great food. The desert's are very good too. We first went with some friends and didn't know what to expect. We have been back numerous times and love it every time we go.
