This is a terrific local spot for breakfast and lunch. The food is good, the service super friendly. Patty always has a smile for everybody. It's our go-to when we want comfort, reliability and friendliness.

First visit to this place. Ordered waffles with eggs and sausage. Prices were a little on the high side in my option. Although I wouldn't knock the restaurant off my list completely, it's definitely towards the bottom of preferred stops.

This is a great place for breakfast or lunch. Both the French toast and the Varsity Deluxe Burger are at the top of my list.

It looks like a "mexican inspired" restaurant. Two times there, two times I found and tried mexican specialities. Portions are pretty good, food was delicious and not expensive.
