I'm OLD (71) and have NEVER been disappointed by this place. GREAT food; fairly priced meals; generous portions; hard-working servers; clean tables, counters, and booths; fast, efficient, competent cooks. Winner-Winner, Chicken, Waffle, or Burger Dinner! Only minor problem I've ever had was MY getting their at odd hours and having trouble finding a place to sit. But has ALWAYS been... More

I have been here several times for lunch and breakfast and have never been disappointed. The staff is friendly and always there to take care of whatever need you have. You can sit at the bar and watch the cooks prepare your meal and visit with them at the same time. Don't bring your credit/debit card to pay with, cash... More

This sign outside just says Diner . So you don't know what to expect when you walk in the door, to the left is a bar with bar stools and a grill behind the bar on the right is a couple of booths. The menu is standard fare with a few Jewish dishes . Grease and flavor is what to... More

Fantastic service, good food and hot coffee. Refilled every time I took a sip! Restaurant was full but did not feel crowded and the food was delivered quickly. The perfect spot. And much needed after a long morning at the DMV a few doors down. I will look forward to my DMV visits now, so I can go to the... More

We tried to go again on Sat, Jun 25th right after listed opening time of 6am but they were not open. Not sure what was... More

Breakfast was very good, generous proportions and the place is a simple old school diner. Nothing fancy just good wholesome food. I ordered the Lox and bagel but was heistant wondering about the quality of the Lox, no worries there and came with generous helpings of tomato and purple onions. The downside was the bagel, yes round with a hole... More

I was in town with a friend, staying at the Hilton in Frontenac. We didn't want to pay the $14 fee for breakfast at the hotel so we ventured out. This place was awesome. It is a small little diner with a very classic feel. The food was delicious and cooked right behind the bar. We went around 9:00 and... More

I ate here a couple of days ago. Sat at the bar and had a cheeseburger and fries, which was pretty average. They don't make their own fries - just buy in the frozen crinkle-cut variety. Today I dropped in for a quick bite before a hair appointment. I ordered a chef salad and a few minutes later the waitress... More

The staff was friendly and courteous. I tried the biscuits and gravy, which was good. The menu is very large, but if you're looking for healthy food you won't find it. If I'm in the area, I would eat here again. Be advise they don't take credit cards, but did have an ATM in the diner.

Food was good. Nothing remotely healthy. Lots of options. Agree that this place could use a good cleaning!
