We enjoyed our lunch here. The service was very friendly and my fried chicken was delicious with collard greens! Worth a pit stop!

We came here after a day of wine tastings. I had heard about this diner before as it was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. There was about a 20 minutes wait. We sat outside, under the tent and sat on picnic tables, which was neat. Dogs are welcome. The one thing that bothered me is that there are flies... More

Tiny diner which has outgrown its popularity. Dropped in to make a booking which on a Saturday lunch was essential. There's the original diner with seating in marquee, as well as a little caravan bar out the back. Long wait for food but worth it. Nashville style chicken very tasty - asked for hot but not as hot as they... More

This is an upscale diner. The food ingredients are top notch. The house specialty is fried chicken with a waffle. The menu is large. It is a comfortable eatery well known to locals.

I've eaten here twice and have to say the food was great but the wait both times was NUTS! Timing here might be everything... Now to be honest, this was some time ago and perhaps they have been able to streamline things. Not necessarily their fault, I'm just saying that if you are starving, know that the wait will be...

We had been looking for a diner and were so happy we found this one. The food was tasty and a fair price. The host/waiter was friendly and the atmosphere was relaxing. Don't let the outside deter you.

Amazing! You can order a bucket of biscuits and side of gravy as an appetizer (we did!) as well as pancakes with a side of fries, red beans and rice, and pulled pork nachos (spicy- hold the sauce if you don't like it hot!) biscuits are amazing! Breakfast all day!!

Honestly, based on the "eclectic" appearance of the place, you're gonna be shocked at what comes out of the kitchen. Highly recommended by locals and it's easy to see why. Friendly staff. Delicious breakfast. Unique and quirky surroundings. Great coffee that comes in your grandpa's Stanley thermos. Don't be tempted to drive on by for something that looks nicer. This... More

Great for biscuits and country charm on a small scale via Sonoma or Napa. Not for large groups or the noisy. Good for a midday repast. Now with extended hours.

You can sit inside at the bar and watch how wonderfully this kitchen team works together, or outside under the marquee/ tent which is more open depending on the weather. The food here is really good. I like the oyster po boy myself but my husband raves about the spicy friend chicken. Their sides are good normally but we have... More
