We eat here 2-3 times a month, usually for breakfast. The food is good and so is the service. I love the variety on the menu, from carb loading biscuits and gravy to protein loaded egg white omlets to everything in between. Oh and their fruit is fresh! Not canned.

Great value for the price, love the salads! It has easy freeway access, right off of Cleveland and 99. If you want a good meal for a good price this is it.

I went into the restaurant at about 2 p.m. and was surprised how long it took to get a seat considering that they weren't that busy. It took quite a while for my order to be taken as well. I ordered the cobb salad all of the ingredients seemed fresh and it tasted good except for the bleu cheese dressing... More

Great variety and pleasant staff. Fair prices for pretty decent food and good portions. Definitely family oriented staff and owners which makes you want to return. Easy substitutions if you need them since there is such a wide variety on the menu and killer burgers.

This place is our "go-to" place. It's not the best, but it's not bad at all.. Their prices have gone up quite a bit in the last couple of years and they no longer have the great specials they used to have...still we go there often. They have all the regular diner favorites; but I do miss their old menu.... More

Stopped on our way to Fresno for lunch. Menu was large. Got the tuna melt and it was delicious. My companion had a burger and fries and liked it. The waitress was quick and friendly.

Here is the good news the food was pretty good and the staff was attentive. It's what you look for right. Here is the strange part it had a bit of a worn out feel to it and at 6:00 on a Saturday it was almost empty. We are not complaining we got a table right away only 4 other... More
