Very clean and fast service. It may appear to be cowed inside, however the turnover is what counts. The manager is always walking around and chatting with the guests.

Very good diner, typical diner fair. Always fast friendly service. Food is always cooked well and has flavor too. Their deserts are really really good too.

This is not a 5 star restaurant, but the food is good, service is quick, and they have a large selection, with breakfast available anytime, and a small salad bar. Easy to get to with plenty of parking.
