My husband and I had breakfast here yesterday. It was so good, we came back today! Love the feel of the 100+ year old place! Must haves, so far... The Tamale Breakfast and The Brisket Hash. Both unbelievably delicious. Great prices too!

Enjoyed the step back to the old time diner atmosphere. Good food for breakfast. Best part they did not over salt the food. Yea. They got a five because they do it right. Good food properly prepared in a quaint setting.

Highly recommended diner was a good choice for an early lunch. Were there during OU's spring break so no wait but still crowded. I suspect you should plan on a wait while school is in session because it is a true "diner" with limited space.

The diner offers tasty breakfast and luncheon meals. Feels and looks like a diner from the 50s. We ate breakfast items. The place is good so you may have to wait to get a seat. You don't have to wait long to get your food.
