Have eaten there many times and no matter what I order it is always good. Their breakfast is the best around.

The breakfast is good!! Their meat is always really greasy though.. the staff is friendly. The place could be cleaner. It still smells like smoke in there from before.

This last visit was on a very busy Sunday morning, my wife ordered the waffles and about a third of the way through then she found a hair on her food ... that ended her meal. My Country Benedict plate was cold but the gravy was hot.... More

My reuben was perfect: lean, tender corned beef, just the right amount of tangy kraut, and a a slice of melty cheese. Thousand Island dressing came on... More
