This is a typical diner with a regular clientele. The wait staff is efficient and pleasant. Service is quick and the food is mostly homemade. The best thing for us was the seniors menu that allowed us to eat for a very reasonable amount. We appreciated the bottomless drinks too (no alcohol is served).

Headed to this diner after a long day on the road and was not disappointed. Huge amount of options, all day breakfast and lunch, and food was delivered quickly and service was A+. Both meals were delicious. Would definitely come again if we weren't heading off tomorrow.
