I came here for breakfast and almost missed it since it's basically with a truck stop. The portions were generous, service was attentive, prices reasonable, and it was clearly a popular place for breakfast. I can't comment of what it would be like for lunch or dinner. Not fancy, but a decent basic place for chow.

I maybe old ...but I remember those mornings of going to a diner for a good breakfast and coffee and good service. Well, this is one of those places. Quick, efficient service, convenient to the Dartmouth hospital and Dartmouth bus service. Fancy, far from it. A basic diner, breakfast or lunch. You probably can't find much better in the area.

Every single thing on their menu rocks! Located right next to the Lebanon High School-its a favorite spot for a diverse crowd ranging from truckers (it's a truck stop), highschool students and the older crowd. Lots of food for a great price

Use to come here all the time when I lived in the Lebanon NH. area and I make it a point to stop in whenever I am back for a visit. Good food and good service. If you are in the area and would like to get away from chain type restaurants, this is one of the places I would... More

Traditional blue-plate specials make this truck-stop very popular. My granddaughter loves the Caesar salad, and the pies and pastries are terrific.

The librarian at Dartmouth recommended this place. Nothing fancy just good hearty American fare. I had a cheeseburger and pie a la mode and spouse had a Reuben. I like the fact that the pie was reasonably priced and was home made. Waitress seemed appreciative of our generous tip. On the way out, I bought a blueberry muffin for the... More

Stopped by for a quick lunch. It took a little longer than I would have wanted but the place was packed. The servers there were running around busting their butts and doing a fantastic job so I can't complain about the wait. I had a Chicken Caesar wrap and fries. Nothing fancy but it was well prepared and tasty so... More
