This is my 2nd time visiting this diner. The diner is oskool diner atmosphere. The greeter was very pleasant. The server was very attentive & gave good advice on the sauce. The chicken strip were tender & nicely cooked. My daughter said the burger was greasy. Fries & onion rings were tasty & cooked well. Overall experience was pleasant.

Nothing fancy, but it's still good. The atmosphere is nostalgic, that dinner car feel. The service is prompt and the wait person friendly and welcoming. Overall it's always a good experience, and especially if you are eating on the fly. Prices are reasonable too

We were traveling on I-40 and my wife suggested this place. We ordered their burgers and fries. The burgers were very dry and the fries were ok. The service was good but I don't think we will be stopping there the next time we are traveling that route.

Cheap and good. Service was good. Food was cheap and nice. I tried the old school root beer float. The serving was enough for me. I love the atmosphere.

My wife and I stopped in and had a wonderful server named Carigan. Our drinks never reached the half empty point. She was constantly hustling in between her tables. We asked for the strawberry cobbler to go and she separated the cobbler and ice cream into separate dishes. She did all of this with a smile on her face and... More

We were traveling through town and decided it looked decent. They have normal diner food with daily specials, burgers, country fried steak, chicken sandwiches. A real plus was that it was clean nothing on the table was sticky😎 Super friendly Aleisha took our order and she was great even though we came in close to closing time. Food was decent... More

So glad we found this little diner along I 40/I 85 corridor! With my stomach rumbling, we decided not to settle for fast food and found this gem across the street from the outlet malls. Fun atmosphere and friendly staff! Good was yummy...especially the strawberry milkshake! Don't miss this one!
