This place is a gem. How did we not know? We spent the morning at the Home Show at the Fairgrounds looking for windows, and needed a treat. We got there a little before noon. 15 minute wait, that went by quickly. Everybody was nice, from the person who took down our name, the hostess (and the young host that... More

Went at 2pm on Sunday, 1 hr before closing. They had just slowed down apparently so we got seated pretty quickly, the restaurant was still full. He got a burger and I got the fruit crepes. It took about 15 minutes to get the food. It was a smaller burger for the price and average tasting. The fruit crepe was... More

Came here with a large group on the weekend, so it was nice we were able to get in pretty fast, but the food took forever to arrive after ordering though (and it came out as it was ready, not the whole group all at once in case you were wondering). Our food itself was solid, but overall not fantastic... More

Here's a place where the ambience is greasy spoon, but the food is terrific. We were referred here by Word of Mouth. Only had to wait 5 minutes on a busy Sunday morning. Service was fast and friendly. Food came super fast and it was terrific. The place is bustling with activity and they do move quickly. We'll come back.

Like burgers, fries, and outstanding onion rings? This is the place to go. It has an old dinner feel and the food is great. The friendly staff remembers you if you are a repeat customer and they help you decide on what's right for you. All our groups items were yummy. They even have glutton free offerings. Try it out...

It was cold and rainy today and my wife and I were out running errands. It got to be lunch time and we both were craving burgers. Where to go? By chance we found ourselves on State street near Sassy Onion. We have eaten breakfast there many times over the years but realized we had never tried the place for... More

Great food and a wide variety of different breakfast items. Love their eggs benedict with avacado. It is packed on the weekends so go early or late!

I met a friend here for brunch and we had a wonderful meal. I had the one of the benedict's and my friend had a combo with pancakes. It was all quite tasty and the price was right. I would eat here again should we be in the area visiting in the future.

Nice setting, very open and roomy dining area. Good solid breakfast with some extra healthy options and good vegetarian choices. Rarely a wait when I've been in.

Went in for lunch thinking of a quick burger. A single cheeseburger- it had 1 badly cooked burger, a small piece of cheese( I couldn't tell you what kind it was supposed to be) and a single piece of wilted disgusting lettuce all for $8.00! Fries? Another $2.00! A drink? Another $2.00.... Service was just bad. Skip this if you... More
