Had a late breakfast at this friendly fixture in McLean. The food is good, plentiful and well prepared and is promptly served. Service is efficient and friendly and pricing is reasonable. Why cook at home??? I enjoyed the skillet breakfast which was quite good.

Greek diner but with limited menu. Well known meeting place for McLean residents. Friendly service. Standard breakfast fare. Good Greek salad and a few Greek offerings such as gyros and hamburgers. Very popular primarily because of the lack of local competition.

The food was decent and the service was ok as well. Good small restaurant with a solid breakfast menu. I would probably visit this place again if I'm back in the area. Nothing that I would go out of my way for.

Just made a second visit here for breakfast 3 months after my last US visit and have to say it was as enjoyable as the first, so great to know that it's consistently good. Old fashioned and quite cosy interior with plenty of seating (if a lit male tight!) Menu is exactly what you would expect with all the breakfast... More

A Mclean staple, I've been eating there since the 1960's. Nothing fancy, just good ol' American food at a reasonable price.

Located in the heart of McLean is a Family Restaurant with reasonable prices and fantastic service. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner are all yummy....as good as mom ever made. Better since you don't have to do the dishes.

This restaurant was packed. The food was awful. I pity the residence of McLean Virginia. Because of its dire shortage of decent places to dine, even a place with this caliber has survived all these years.

Good old fashioned comfort food. Not fancy but wildly popular - especially for brunch/breakfast on weekends. Good service/very nice wait staff.

I have eaten at this Mclean relic many times, usually for breakfast. This place does a killer business for breakfast and lunch as the locals love this place. Many folks are in the more mature demographic (read very old) but the reason is the food is well priced and good. Pancakes are huge and fluffy and sandwiches are all excellent.... More

I have been there twice now. I love their shrimp salad on avocado. Our waiter was helpful. They are busy but we had no wait. I will go again.
