Great food and plenty of it. I'm hoping today is just an off day with the server I had or that she is new. I will definitely come back again and give it a second chance.

Always a great breakfast. Parking lot is a little tight sometimes, but you can park on the street. But service is always excellent and food is always good.

I love this place because it's usually seating within a few minutes. Extensive menu for breakfast and lunch and the portions are so large you could really share them or take half home. The hamburgers require a lot of napkins. they are juicy with sliced tomatoe, lettuce, onion, thousand Island dressing, and pickles. all-around a perfect burger. The breakfast portions... More

I've been here several times for lunch and the food is amazing. I've had the quesadilla, a burger, and a salad, on three different occasions and they were all absolutely outstanding. Highly recommend this casual cafe for lunch.

Ditto on the hash browns, I get them instead of fries with any sandwich. The burger is a testament to just using a good quality mix in the patty and cooking it properly. A modest restaurant--don't take anyone you want to impress with ambience--but the food is uniformly great quality and always cooked properly. I live 15 miles away so... More

Unfortunately this type of diner doesn't warrant a $10 lunch without a drink. The food is good but inconsistent. I'm sure the current economy is affecting them but probably raising the prices will not be beneficial in the long run.
