This place is always really busy, and I don't understand why. The food was mediocre and the servers are awful. This was my first time going there, on Valentine's Day, and our waitress was extremely rude. It ruined my experience instantly. Although the food was warm, it was nothing special. I won't be returning.

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.

I like the atmosphere (greasy spoon/diner), I like the service (busy, friendly, but no time for BS), and I like the food.

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.

I went here with my mom and my boyfriend in July. We were told that there's usually a wait, so we were prepared to wait. But we stepped inside and the waitress told us to take a seat over there and she'd wipe the table down. Talk about efficient! It has the atmosphere of a family owned, small town diner. The food was just perfect. I got the cheesy omelette with hash browns and toast. It was so cheesy! There was literally a mountain of cheese on top! I've been craving it ever since. Their biscuits and gravy are commendable, according to my boyfriend. It's easy to get to, as well. I will definitely go again (and again and again and again)!
