Perfect diner food. We were served quickly. My cheese omelette was nice and hot with good home fries and rye toast. My husband had the delicious ham with his egg. Coffee was good and we liked the comfy atmosphere.

You can tell a good diner when it sits alone in a far off place, and it stays filled with people. Classic diner food, get anything you want at any time. Good portions and reasonable prices.

This is a nostalgic old time diner. Great service, great food. We stopped in for brunch. My husband had eggs benedict which had great hollandaise sauce and was done perfectly. I had the John Wayne Burger, which was made with fresh ground beef, not a frozen patty. The diner was clean and the staff was friendly. Would definitely go back... More

Stopped in for breakfast. Service was prompt, and our meals came out quickly. We had omelettes, home fries, toast and sides of ham and bacon. The food was plentiful and excellent. Home fries were chunky and homemade. The prize winner was the very delicious ham, however. The "décor" was interesting.....old photos and posters of celebrities, old records, etc. It was... More

Place looks very 90s and typical diner look. Serves great meaty scrampy (consists of 2 scrambled eggs with meat of your choice from ham, sausage, italian sausage, bacon) and toast and homefries. Come over to take a look

We stopped for lunch based on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. My patty melt was perfectly grilled and the grilled onions and burger were right on the mark. My wife hamburger - which she always has sans-bun - was also delicious. Would liked to have tried more but this was a quick stop while on the road. A great... More

I like this place mostly because it is convenient on the way to work. Food portions are generous. Food is good but not great. A little overpriced when compared to Little George's Restaurant in W. Springfield. Waitresses don't smile. But I think they just don't want to get slowed down from serving food and taking Keno tickets. Maybe they don't... More

Went here for breakfast today. Great atmosphere, definitely an old school diner. Lots of great choices on the menu and the food was great. I would recommend the ham. Service was great. I would go back and I recommend this place if you're in the area.

My son and I were happy to find this little place during our visit to the area. A classic old diner serving breakfast and lunch - where the smiles are free, the food is home cooked and the grease is flowing. You won't find earl grey tea or gluten-free bread, but you will find DELICIOUS home baked ham to go... More
