Friendly staff and fast service were just what we needed for a quick diner breakfast. Plenty to eat with great crispy bacon, just as requested. Interesting classic car decor in a well kept restaurant. We will be back!

We eat here a lot. The food is great and the staff friendly. You get a lot of food for the money so the value is great. Would recommend to anyone.

We stopped at this restaurant for lunch. We had steak fajitas and they were excellent. The meat was very tender and spiced perfectly. Prices were reasonable and the service was good. We would definitely visit this restaurant again
