It is not unusual to stand in line waiting for a table on Sunday mornings, and for good reason. Besides Sunday being the most popular day to eat breakfast out, their food is awesome. The help is friendly and the restaurant is clean. Your order is delivered in a reasonable amount of time and cooked exactly as ordered. Best yet,... More

Well the new owner from California took over and nothing has improved. I ordered a two egg, hashbrown, toast breakfast special....have to order a 2.50 drink to get it and what a disappointment. First off, the fork was so cheap that I could not get the food to stay on it. Should have used a spoon, but hey, I was... More

Gravy tasted like flour and milk...no flavor. Biscuit very bland also. Bacon slices were so thin I could see through them. Egg cooked as ordered. Service was fine. Both times I have eaten here the food was very mediocre.

Ate breakfast here with friends while visiting Tucson. Had the daily special green chili omelet which was excellent. Our waitress was attentive, friendly, and helpful. The pancakes that came with the omelet were huge. We will definitely come back on our next visit to Tucson.

Went with a friend that has been a few times. Seems this is a popular place amongst the locals. I am guessing because there are very few breakfast joints in the area. My friend had something cant remember with hashbrowns that tasted sweet and like coconut. I guess they got pancake batter on it but it didnt taste good. They... More

My sister takes my father and I to this restaurant. We all order our food, it is served, and then I decide to order a couple of extra sides. The waitress brings me only one side and forgets the other. I ask her about my potatoes very politely and she says real loud in the restaurant that I am brothering... More

We meet there once a month. They do a very good job getting hot food to the table for a large group of men and every one is served in the same 3 - 4 minute time window. The wait staff always has time to be friendly. The food is good. I don't care for runny grits so I no... More

This is a niche restaurant, only open in the morning and for lunch. Great breakfasts and the service is first rate. The food is good and the prices reasonable. Real good basic food!

Friendly waitresses. Old style diner feel. Great food. We ate there twice in our one-week stay in Arizona. No issue when some of us ordered lunch and others breakfast. Everything we had (both times) was good. No complaints except that there isn't anything like it anywhere near where I live!
