My family and I stumbled upon this place and could not have had a better dinner experience. At first glance we were a bit concerned because the place was small, didn't have a great look, and there were no tables/chairs, only stools at a bar....More

I ate there with my son and he loved it! The burgers are juicy and delicious. The fries were also unique. They put a little green spice on them which really highlighted the flavor of the fries!

Stopped in here for breakfast mostly because of this place's close resemblance to the place in the painting "Nighthhawks." Pretty sure I was the only non-regular in the place; certainly, I was the only person there with a suitcase (I walked there from the Logan...More

This is the classic 'greasy spoon' breakfast place. Order at the counter. We had great omelettes and coffee. My biggest complaint was that we had coffee in disposable cups. Other than that it was great!
