The food is great, the service friendly and helpful. This is where the locals go to eat! I love the variety of Club Sandwiches that are available, but the burgers are over the top, too! Trade up for fries as they are perfect!

I eat here at least twice a week for lunch and every Saturday morning. The food is consistent. Mom and pop operation and worth the trip.

Stromboli is very good, but I felt that charging extra for tomato sauce was a bit odd. Service was pleasant and accurate.

We stopped in for a "quick" lunch. The food was good. My son enjoyed the pizza - homemade crust! My husband's fish and chips were not quite as expected. The Ruben was really good. Decent prices. It just took longer than we expected...probably due to...More

If you like diner food, and have time for a leisurely dinner, this is your place. They make their own kaiser rolls each morning and they are wonderful. Their burgers are the best is town and they are known for their chicken salad. The owner...More
