Always a great place to eat. Very consistent and its almost impossible to empty a glass or cup without them refilling it, unless they are crazy busy. All food is good especially breakfast. My favorite cause they know how to cook hash browns.

Grilled tenderloin sandwich was very good. When we are traveling or visiting a different town, we try new places, and we're not disappointed.

Great eating small town diner. It's blocks away from the famous John Wayne Birthplace. Great for burgers, tenderloins, and the hot beef sandwich.
