This is sort of like your classic truckstop diner. Very simple menu written on a chalkboard. Wasn't super impressed with the breakfast but it is what it is. Definitely wasn't bad at all. Just simple. Loved the 50's decor and music. Unlike other reviews, the...More

An interesting place to eat. Food is basic and cheap so don`t expect 5 star but still worth it. Two can eat for about $20.00 or less. Service always friendly. 50`s decor. Can get busy.

Food is great. But we waited an hour for eggs and pancakes. Don't be in a rush. 9 tables and about 12 stools.... it was the long weekend but you KNOW you are going to be busy.
