We were going to either hit up a Waffle House or a Dunkin Donuts and when we say the sign for this place we decided to check it out. We ended up chatting with some locals and had a great time/conversation. Service was ‘ok’. We...More

When I have an option of a local diner vs. a Waffle House, I opt for the local place. I wasn't disappointed. Coffee was excellent, pancakes were amazing! Wish they offered poached eggs, but I was content with the sunnyside. It's run down inside, which...More

Hearty breakfast, large portions, good service. Obviously a favorite with locals and guests at nearby hotels. Dinner menu looked good. Inexpensive. Would go back again if in the area. Yes, it could use a good steam cleaning, but not unhealthy.

Cheap, fast, comfort food, right on US 60, near the Richmond Airport. Lots of fried food, but they do a good job on what they cook. Good choices of sides. Seems like a popular local place.
