This is what a diner should be! great food and a great staff! Place hasn't been updated in 30 years and who cares? I love the omelettes and the tuna melt is one of my favs. Oh and all the soup is homemade, which is hard to find. Give it a try!

Seriously - if you like diners and you like breakfast, order something that comes with hashbrowns (pretty much everything does). They're hot, crispy, and didn't come out of a freezer before they hit the pan. The place looks like it hasn't been redecorated since the late 70s (in a good way!), and the service is attentive.

Went to breakfast for my birthday and received excellent service and wonderful food! Will definitely be back multiple times! Not just because it's local.

Simply put, the BK is awesome. When you walk in, you feel like you are in the 80's. The decor hasnt been updated, the waitresses are all dolled up. The Special is the only thing I get. An unreal amount of food for the price. Go check this place out!

This was a great little diner that we stopped for breakfast as we past through town. The decor was a bit dated but the food was great.

I went here with a group of friends. The place is small, local and relatively easy to get to. The floorplan is pure old-style greasy-spoon. Normally I like this style of eats as it harkens to my nostalgia. However, I a lover of a particular specialty as this restaurant ordered this as my choice. I will say with great disappointment,...

Service was good. Food was really good (quantity was a bit low, but not bad). I would recommend giving this place a try.

We flew in from Austin, and wanted a good home cooked meal. We ate here based off Breakfast King being voted top 10 breakfasts by the locals. I can see why. Great service (Kathy retires next week, after 41yrs- better hurry so you can meet this jewel!). Delicious food. Huge portions. We could have shared the potatoes. And the pancakes,... More
