We wanted to have a late bite after a long day. The diner had that funky campus vibe that felt welcoming- and we're a couple of Boomers! The service was quick, and the food well-prepared. It felt like a place that's been there forever.

This place has a typical old school Airstream diner vibe. Some of our group had breakfast and some had lunch - so that feature was nice. They have a large selection, quick service and decent food.

Always worth the wait, this off the beaten path restaurant stands on its own as a reliable eatery. Can't go wrong with any meal and the prices are student friendly.

It's not fancy, but it's perfect! 3 couples were in town for a concert on a Saturday night, which lead to a late night of drinks and fun. Before heading back home on Sunday, we all needed some food and friendly service. This place fits...More

We stopped while driving through - lunch was really good. Burger was fine, chicken sandwich was good too. Friendly wait staff.

This was the second time I have visited this Athens staple on the morning of my daughters graduation. We had seven people at our table and could not have asked for better service food or value! The portions were huge and when I got the...More
