I stopped here on a trip driving Route 66. Faded charm would be n overstatement - cheap and friendly diner but doing it tough is the best way to explain this place (and the town)

Friendly service and food was served hot and fresh. A menu with a wide variety and something for everyone. Prices are very reasonable. The best schnitzel I've had anywhere in ages!
