Have been coming to this diner for the past 11 years and always find something new to try! Really enjoy the tasty breakfast menu- pancakes, waffles and extra-filling omelettes are always a good choice. I recommend the Bruschetta Burger - best bargain on the menu and absolutely delicious! Beef Burger grilled the way you like it, served open-faced on a... More

Like most diners, this one doesn't disappoint in terms of quantity, but the quality is equally good. I think the menu is 8 pages long, chock full of all kinds of choices. Sunday breakfast after church was a tradition for us for years and we still love going whenever we can.

Huge menu with selections in every category. Omelets are very good with fresh ingredients. Can't get a bloody Mary before noon :-)

Stopped by for lunch and even though the parking lot was packed, we were seated right away and the meals came quickly. We all had sandwiches were packed full of meat and were more than we needed. We all took half of our meals home with us. Price was fair, and the service was attentive.

A meal that eats like THREE. my daughter started with a mango smoothie ( $5.95) pricey, but beautiful, then on to a grilled chicken avocado focaccia with fries and Cole slaw. I had a classic cheeseburger with fresh mushroom. Served with Mike-high lettuce and tomato in just the right ratio between a beautiful, toasted whole grain brioche bun that held... More

What one would expect from a diner - plenty of choices, large potions, reasonable prices, decent food and solid service. Definitely would return for a quick bite.

I have been to this diner a ga-zillion times through the years, and I am rarely disappointed. No, it's not the Culinary Institute (that's a very short drive north), but it is good, solid American food, with a good menu offering many satisfying options. Went there last night with husband for a light meal. The food was good, and the... More

This place is really convenient as it is open 24/7. The food for the most part is pretty good but it is slightly on the pricer side. The staff is typically very friendly and helpful.
