We have had breakfast, lunch & dinner - enjoyed all of these. They have specials, fun jokes, locals at the counter, coffee refills & nice personnel. This place is a bit dated but that's part of their charm. Prefer to chain restaurants which are boring, inconsistent, overpriced & all the same.

This place was a good choice for our dinner. They serve you soup or salad and dessert for dinner. It was very good diner food. The service was very attentive and friendly.

Nothing fancy but delicious home cooked food, great service and very reasonably-priced. Many good reasons this restaurant has been in business since 1934.

Good food, especially the broasted chicken (cooked to order, so allow time) and plenty of chicken on the plate. Nothing fancy for sure, but great service.

Feels like going back in time with the old sinking cushion booth seating and the diner counter at the front. The food is quite good, tastes like homemade (hopefully most of it is!) and is typical of the old time family diners-burgers, fries, gravy laden meats dishes, soups,desserts and much more on their menu. Staff has always been very friendly... More

Passing through and stopped for late lunch. Great service. Nice homey interior. My home-made chili was quite good. Thick and spiced right. This one had beans and meat. Our other meal, the tuna salad was large and all the salad ingredients were fresh. The tuna was fine, but didn't have any mayo in it. Just appeared that they emptied a... More

We were passing thru Idaho Falls and decided to try this place for breakfast. Glad we did. Both of our meals were great and so was the service. Obviously this is a good place, it was packed with locals eating. Will be back when we are in the city again.

It is a old fashioned diner style restaurant. They make a great breakfast and a decent burger. This is where the locals really do eat.

We found this restaurant through TA. So glad we stopped. It's an older place where locals eat. Nothing fancy, very clean, and yummy home style cooking. Prices were very reasonable. We ordered the Spanish omelette and Veggie omelette. Hashbrowns were good and not too greasy. Pancakes nice and fluffy. With coffee the meal came to $21.00. Waitresses were very friendly... More
