It is like stepping 50 years into the past. Tasty and simple classics served with a smile. The lady at the counter was very friendly. The prices are great as well. We had French fries, grilled cheese, a double cheeseburger, and a strawberry shake. Hand...More

When I was in Kansas City over Labor Day weekend for 2016's WorldCon, I naturally ate a LOT of Barbecue (reviews elsewhere). But sometimes you want something that doesn't taste like it just came out of a smoker (hard as that is to believe!) -...More

Maybe my expectations were too high. I knew this was a greasy spoon, but that is just fine and sometimes the food literally drips with flavor. The diner was packed with workers coming for pick-up orders. There were a couple of stools at the counter...More
