Local places always seem to be really good. This breakfast/brunch place is super yum and easy on the wallet. Its very 50's ish themed, or at least it feels that way. Its basically in an old waffle house/huddle house. But better because of the local...More

Excellent food, great service, and many choices from which to choose! My only complaint is there can be a wait on Saturday mornings.

Good for you to comment on the review that gave a ridiculous rating that in no way was the fault of the owners. You are a great customer and I will go out of my way to visit this restaurant the next time I am in Knoxville.
