Great food, service and menu. If you want a great time, sit at the counter and watch the cooks coordinated effort on the grills. Great food and great time. Breakfast was delicious and more than enoughm and very reasonably priced. Worth the wait!

My partner opted for breakfast and I went for lunch- in both categories we picked well. The Portuguese Sailor was one of the best sandwiches I've had and the eggs benny were solid as well. A greasy spoon worth the trip.
