My family eats at the diner every few weeks. We have never gotten a meal that we didn’t enjoy. The staff is always friendly, service is always great.

Me and my cousin frequent this restaurant for breakfast or lunch. Very fast service and sometimes friendly waiters. Sometimes waiters rush you to take your order. Food is pretty good.
