Nicer than your typical dive diner, but all the hustle and bustle that your expect from a busy downtown location. Nothing fancy -- just consistently great grub for the whole family.

I'm appalled that there are reviews of KC that include adjectives such as "disappointed," and "overrated." It's a freakin' "DINER," people! Temper your expectations. If you think the portions are "small" or the food "tasteless," you don't understand food and need to go back to...More

They are open for breakfast all day. The portions are large. They only take cash no credit cards. I has two eggs, hashbrowns and toast on a very large plate. The food and service were very good.

I agree with ordering it from their website. Our waitress told us locally you can find it at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, but our California stores don't carry them. We also loved the green chili sauce!
