A real old neighborhood eatery out of yesteryear. Food is amazingly generous; you will not leave without a doggie bag so the extra dollar you may spend is well worth it. Waitresses are super friendly and kind of wisecracking and funny. Seems like a lot...More

This little luncheonette is convenient but is lacking something. While the food is adequate, the evening serving crew isn't their best. The single waitress is easily overwhelmed and the man behind the counter just stands there as if he is handcuffed to the register. The...More
