Looking for a late night snack. Had half order of chili cheese fries and Apple pie à la mode for dessert. Both were really good. Cute little place, server was super friendly. Prices are very reasonable. Will be back for lunch.

Food was fresh and tasty at this great little diner. Best hush puppies I've ever had and the portions were more than generous. I'm from Mass and was in town for a wedding, boy I'll miss this place!

The desert was great just add walnuts. The Italian sub my wife had wasn't very good. She left half of it. Bread was stale and the dressing had some seasonings added that were not Italian. Would return for desert only.
