They serve their famous hash browns well, but it was a little too oily for me... so if you have a history of ulcers/gastritis, may need to pat down the hash brown with some napkins before downing it. I do love their omelets, and it's always entertaining seeing them draw on their big windows.

Service absolutely blows. I've only been here a couple of times and every time the servers are absolutely horrendous. I wouldn't know if the foods good or not because we walked out every time. Don't waste your money you're better off going to somewhere that appreciate your business.

We were served by the rudest waitress in the world. Unbelievable. Apparently was in a fight with another waitress and took it out on us by snapping at us although we were nothing but polite to her. Will NEVER eat here again and if you eat here you should have your head examined. There are way too many other places trying to do a good job. There is no reason to have to take the crap this place dishes out. The bathrooms are filthy and that is always a sign of what the kitchen looks like. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE.

Delivered as promised. Great food and service. Decor has a classic diner style with fun wall art. Coffee left more to be desired. Highly recommended.

The ultimate in a "greasy spoon" and I say that with love. Great diner food, friendly service. Harkens back to a different era of restaurants/diners.
