Great place to go to in the middle of the night when you've got a bout of insomnia.

I love old diners and crappy cafeteria-quality food and this place does not disappoint. Extra points because I got flashed here once by some old creepy dude.

Cafeteria-style food from years past. Better than McD's, I guess.
