Classic American diner, excellent breakfasts, sandwiches, burgers. Friendly and efficient service. Exactly what you expect and, often, crave on the road

Good parking, affordable tasty dishes. This is where the locals eat and for good reason. Food was prepared quickly and served to us right away. Portions are fairly large and made from scratch. Next we are in the area we will be stopping by.
