Almost gave it a four but settled on 3 stars. The place is small but our party of five was able to sit together at a table. The BBQ was very good. I had the pulled beef which was tender and flavorful, and my daughter...More

This place is unfortunately not going to serve up as good or creative a diner fare as Silver Diner, which by the way has become excellent. We all felt that way. But, the people here are true Americans and good people who support Vets and...More

Its a diner. Nothing more nothing less. Its a good diner. It does diner food. Good, tasty, hot and with great genuinely friendly service. They also collect for the Vets and even let us sign one of their flags for the wall. Honoured!
