Our servers made sure our coffee was constantly refilled and it was fresh. I had the corn beef hash with eggs and “those potatoes”. Those potatoes are fried with green peppers, onions and tomatoes. The hash was good and crispy. I cleaned my plate. This...More

This restaurant is nice. There is a train that runs around the ceiling and is fun to watch. Food was very good and portions were large. Kinda pricey though...

Great old-school diner. Char-broiled burgers, mounds of fries and handmade floats and shakes. Quick, friendly service—highly recommend!

We love going to this little restaurant when we are in Flag... the food is yummy and very nostalgic....plus it isn’t a chain restaurant...gotta love it!! We’ve never been disappointed...and the kids love watching the train travel around the ceiling.

Huge portions. We could have split all our meals. Pasta plates huge. Green Chili bowl huge. Not impressed with Cole slaw and beans but probably because they were flavored differently than I'm used to in the Midwest.

Great diner on Route 66! We stopped in for breakfast passing through town on our vacation. Large portions of food! My husband and I wished we had split a plate. Friendly staff, very clean facilities, loved the nostalgic feel of the place.

What a wonderful diner right on Historic Route 66! We enjoyed sitting right up at the stools (very comfortable ones) and watching the lighted model train go around its track above our heads. The staff demonstrated great teamwork--they were fun to watch. I recommend stopping...More

My husband & I shared the ham & cheese omelet & I’m glad we shared. Huge portions. The pancake we shared was the size of a plate & included in lieu of toast. Wait staff were fabulous too. The ambiance with the miniature trains is...More
