Food was plentiful, service was really slow, food was on a par with any older breakfast greasy spoon . The two a/c units inadequate for this place, and should be turned on earlier in the day. Do Not Order separate items. Order a combo type meal even if u don't want it all or you'll pay thru the nose. Otherwise... More

Great prices, Huge portions, and good food. Not much to look at, but a friendly bunch of people. Service was quick and correct. Food isn't fancy, just good old breakfast basics.

very good food. do not expect anything fancy, this is a diner..but the food was good and hot. Homefries are super, and two of us shared a 1/2 order...and it was still too much..toast is hot and really toasted. Eggs were perfect

The interior is old, and not in the antique charming way....painted and warped T11 walls. The location is down a lonely highway, a bit creepy. Wait staff was nice enough, they also cook so they are too busy to converse. Paid $9.25 for a veggie omelet and toast, no hashbrowns. Veggies were from a jar, not canned (excluding the tomatoes)....

The building does not put on airs, but once inside it's an old fashioned hometown diner where th cooking happens righ before your eyes. Great selection of breakfast combos, wonderful coffee...wait staff were authentic and unobtrusive, knew what you neede just before we did. The prices were very frugal. A wonderful local wonder..will visit again, and again, and again...

generous servings, (luckily they offer half-size portions). Outstanding (huge, the size of small pizza) pancakes. Place gets busy so service responsiveness does suffer, but is well worth the wait.

An employee at the Ganondagan site (about 40 minutes away!) recommended this place to us for great diner food in a not-fancy place. We stopped by for lunch around 1pm but found it was closed with a "Closed - No Help" sign on the door (the regular hours posted on the door were something like 5am to 2pm). We came... More

This is a diner not a high scale restaurant. So,I know if I want that get my bum I'm the kitchen. All the food gets cooked on... More
