Our greatest hometown restaurant. Always fresh and hot. They will even do a special order you. If you want something that's not on the menu if they have the ingredients to fix it for you.

This was pretty much your average diner, however, it was a smoke free place (which earned major points w/ my husband and I). But I must say, if you go here, you MUST try the Fried Green Tomato's with their signature sour cream!!! It truly...More
