Looked forward to a good breakfast, what a disappointment. Service was ok, but the coffee was warm at best, eggs and home fries not hot. Potatoes, burned and dry. Pass this one up.

Dinner for two on a Monday night. We were seated quickly. There was a little delay in getting the order, but the food was fine (salad with chicken, omelette). Omelette was good well. More food than we could eat.

Good diner. Large selection of food from the menus. Friendly wait staff. Nothing great about the food, but nothing bad either.

I go to this diner whenever I feel like almost-at-home-cooked comfort food. Good tasting, filling, and open late.

Stopped by here for lunch recently. Service was very good and the food was plentiful. Their gyro platter is excellent and their salads were huge. All in all we'd return for sure.
