I remember when the building used to be a Huddle House. Nick and J managed to turn that train wreck around and create an atmosphere of home cooking, friendly service and a great customer environment. If there was a down side, it would be their hours of operation. But, will all good things, I understand why they have limited hours of operation. I hope they keep up the great work and I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good meal.

The food was good, I had the daily special which was meatloaf. We felt rushed, even though we were 1 of maybe 5 tables at the time.

Burgers were touted as what they're famous for and I was NOT disappointed. Very quick service, very pleasant staff. Would definitely recommend!
