It's tight in the XXX but that's part of the charm. They turned me on to peanut butter on my burger. The best homemade root beer. Walking distance to hotels by the Wabash and to campus.

I liked the history of the place. I could not find the bathroom but I did not ask. Food was not to my liking. Our server was very nice. The orange soda was flat. Root beer tasted good.

On the Hill but on the Level for the great Drew Brees breakfast special. AWESOME! Been having breakfast at XXX since 1972 and the food is always fast and delicious.

What a neat place. Been around a long time. Busy as beck at three in the afternoon! The burger was fantastic but the root beer is divine. Take the drive and enjoy!

Whatever you get, make sure you get the hash browns. I don't know what they do to make them so good! When you order eggs over medium, that's exactly what you get. Love it!

Old school diner we stopped at for a bite to eat on the way home to Chicago from Indy. Only complaint (from my wife) was the restroom needed an overhaul. Eating inside is all counter service in extremely tight quarters. Food was pretty good, but...More

So disappointed in this local legend that I was really looking forward to. Maybe we just went on the wrong day. So busy. So crowded. Staff was so stressed. The place was jam packed with families with young kids. There are outdoor tables for relative...More

Prices for the main items generally run between $7-$11. A diner in a college town means reasonable prices.
