Have been many times and have never written a review and I don't know why. Breakfast...chicken and waffles..never had before...so good..Reuben sandwich, burgers and the best fries. I make a really good prime rib but wanted to try their's but is always sold out .this place is a must go to. Not fancy...just good

We went to Duncan for the evening & as a family of 7 (1 temp in a wheelchair) we stopped to have dinner. This was my families first time there and they loved it, service was A+! The waitress was very accommodating to our family, we will definitely be going back on our next travels.

Don't like the 'greasy spoon attached to a motel' exterior fool you. This restaurant is a gem for a solid Canadian breakfast. Warm, welcoming, interesting and cheerful interior. Good service. Good food. We think it's family run, and always enjoy breakfast there. We'll go back again.

Consistently good meals with big portions. Was there several times recently and I was quite impressed. An easily overlooked restaurant with pleasant staff and clean facility. Will go back again!

Typical diner fried food, if that's what you thrive on then you will like it. If you like to eat at least a bit healthy and avoid it all costs. Nothing green here!
