We waited for 1 1/2 hours to get our food. The food was good. Not sure if this happens often or just a fluke in waiting for our food.

Always a great place to eat. Very consistent and its almost impossible to empty a glass or cup without them refilling it, unless they are crazy busy. All food is good especially breakfast. My favorite cause they know how to cook hash browns.

Excellent food, hot, fresh. Straight ahead menu, but that is exactly what we wanted. Good portion size without being ridiculous. Servers attentive and friendly, very good value for price. Obviously popular with the local crowd.
