I’m staying at a motel next door and walked to the Restaurant for dinner. Small place and with a “Retro Route 66” theme. Food was really good. Enjoyed it and recommend it for a relaxing bite.

Good basic food, don't expect cordon bleu but it does the job if you are hungry. Place was clean and the service good.

Stopped in for lunch, quaint Route 66 decor and good food. Even have a green chili burger. Old style diner and waitresses that remind you of the 50’s.

We stopped here for a light supper and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food. Love the nostalgic atmosphere. And the service was outstanding! I asked for a dessert not on the menu and they prepared it for me. I'll definitely revisit this diner...More

Not much to say here, average small town diner. Prices fair, food average, nothing jumped out to mention. Not a bad place, not a fantastic place. Service average. Your call?
