Best chicken fried chicken I've had in years. Fun 50's kind of vibe to the decor. Southern style home cooking. A must stop in Waco.

Our burgers were great! The waiter was an awesome guy and made good suggestions. Vermacelli salad was awesome. The Key lime and buttermilk pecan pies are to die for. Their pastry chef knows what she's doing and the crust was amazing! Great experience!

We happened by this restaurant. Much to our surprise it wasn't a "tea house". It was an old fashioned diner. We had the best hambergers ever. The motif was a 50'small diner.

Great food, service, and atmosphere! The burgers are the best in town. But the best thing on all is the Homemade Banana Pudding. We try to go several times a month.

Came recommended on the website of the Gains and it was terrible. Could not finish the hamburger so just left it. I was surprised that there was a line to get into the place. Would never go back.

Eaten there several times and every meal is good comfort food. Where they shine is dessert -- look at the dessert case as you go in and save room!

Cool decor - old diner feel. Comfort food, malts, specials, sandwiches - lots of choices. Busy - and that's a good sign. Food was good - not great. But we enjoyed it and would recommend it.
