Quaint diner. Friendly staff. Dinner Menu is limited to seemingly fried foods. Portions were more than ample. Service was prompt. Employees seemed to care about their customers. They only accept cash as payment.

Was packed-meaning gotta be good food right? It was. AND...they serve Breakfast anytime too. Neat place...with an ambiance -flair of the late 50's Diner setup. Cool! Good food, great service. Glad we "accidentally" found it while searching for a place to munch down.

I was jonesing for chili and decided on frito pie (chili and fritos) along with a vanilla shake. Food was what I was expecting. Although the choice to use a plastic basket with wax paper for fritos, chili and cheese was an odd choice. The...More
