Eaten here several times and really enjoy the atmosphere. Joanne, Carol, and the team are super friendly and very efficient. Oh, and the food is really quite tasty. The hot dogs are truly delicious!

Inside looks like an older diner, the food was delicious and the waitress we had was super nice. We also got a cool old paper car with our kids meal!
