I have been coming here for years and it's never disappointed. If you want a get to the point roast beef sandwich this is your place. Nothing fancy but a very good food!

Their hours are pretty limited if you are a traveler; only open until 3:00 pm on the weekdays. If you can make it in (and find it if you are from out-of-town) you will be rewarded with genuine people and a great product. I loved...More

The restaurant has been around since 1969. I just visited and had a sandwich for the first time ever. I am going back. Quaint little diner tucked in a big office building now.

Really great local place to eat. Great food and very friendly staff. Roast beef is delicious but specials look good too.

This place, hidden inside an office building, promised to be a good find. Instead, I'm terribly disappointed. The friendly service is the only redeeming factor. The food was disappointing. Go to Arby's. You'll get a roast beef sandwich that is tastier, juicier and even warmer!...More

This is a classic traditional hamburger place with the roast beef taking center stage. The roast beef sandwich is a similar size to an Arby's but with twice the flavor. I had the onion rings which were great and they also serve shakes. I can...More

This isn't even in the same league with other faster food places - keep in mind it is a diner in office building. The roast beef is so tender, lean and flavorful. Loved the mashed potatoes too. Good service with a smile. If you are...More
