Pancakes are huge! Waitresses are really nice, friendly and fun! I had the Nicks special wrap!! Just ask for it nick knows what it is! Cooks know how to cook fun to watch them cook in front of you. Must try if in the area locals already know for sure!

The diner is small. We drove by on two different occasions before finally going inside on a weekday when the parking lot wasn't packed. Decent prices. Food was delicious! We will be back.

I have seen the commercial about a gazillion times and finally decided to try it out. Of course Father's Day was probably not the right day to go as the parking lot was full and there were folks standing in the doorway when we got there. It's easy to miss if you aren't looking for it, but it's basically a... More

The Diner, simply perfect 1940 original My honey went ahead and tried to find a new place. I'm always fussy about taste and place👍 Well this was a tiny gem which will make a trip to the nearby mall much nicer. Thank you to the tatooed guys at the grill! Yummy croussant, chedder, egg and crunchy bacon 💋

We went here for the first time. We are local and normally go out for breakfast mostly when we are on vacation. However, we will be return customers here! They have early bird specials, as well as different daily specials. The service is fast and efficient and the breakfast was delicious! In our book they are doing everything right!

We went on a day that was unseasonably hot, like 90+ degrees. Sure was hot inside the diner, but the fast service helped, and the great food distracted us. Everything was made as ordered and expected.

As a local, this is my go to breakfast spot with my wife, kids or friends on a Saturday morning. Place is small and it fills up fast so get there early. I only wish that they offered a premium maple syrup.
