It's like old home week....with big servings of your favorite comfort food. Giant burgers, breakfasts, and lots of other great menu items. It gets crowded...if you can avoid prime times, try a late lunch/early dinner. Sunday afternoon proved to be a great time to get a table with no waiting.

Good food, good service. Great little dinner, always packed. Never had a bad meal whether breakfast, lunch or dinner. They close early so get there early to eat. Portions are good size, always served at correct temp, staff friendlly, quality eats and good prices.

We were greeted as soon as we walked in the door. Had to wait about 10 minutes for a table but service was fast. We all enjoyed a great breakfast with reasonable prices. Will go back next time we're in Akron.

My friend and I go this diner several times a year for breakfast. The breakfast's are exceptional in taste and quantity. The service is very fast. Most of the time, our orders are ready after 10 minutes. The place is not fancy, more of a hole in the wall, but it's worth it.

I met my son there for breakfast. We had to wait in line for 10 minutes; but well worth the wait. We both ordered the #2; his with bacon, mine with ham. The meal was delicious and overwhelming - really ample portions. Staff was friendly and helpful.

The motto is eat pay get out! Not a hang out comfortable place at all, but if you want tons of bacon and good breakfast - go for it.
