Lots of food, friendly service. Plates are piled high. Their signature hamburger could feed two or three people.

Like Your Hash Browns Crispy? No problem, just tell the waitress you want them crispy. She'll lead you to believe that's what will arrive. Foolish expectations. You'll get what everyone else gets.
