Nice 50s theme diner with great food and service. Staff are all very friendly and welcoming. I had buffalo chicken wrap and was one of the best I've had.

I've had most things on the menu, everything is always fresh and tastes great. I wish they'd bring back the fish tacos! I eat Breakfast, lunch or dinner here at least once per week.
