The eggs are perfectly cooked, the pancakes are even better than IHOP's used to be. This is a regular from now on for me.

New owners from a few years. I have been there over 20 years. I love it. Many selections but the best burgers on the planet, really. I order the Anthony Quinn. Burgers named after movie stars, Stella died a few years ago, but the new owners kept all the recipes. Quality is great. Come hungry, great portions. Not a cheap... More

The restaurant changed ownership a while ago. While they did keep the prior menu which has excellent hamburgers and breakfast items, they expanded their menu to include a number of Italian entrees. My favorite meals include the eggs benedict florentine, their hamburgers, and calamari pasta. Service is friend as are the owners.

Hadn't eaten there in years. I understand that it's now owned by the same owner as Roma's in the same town. I meet the owner and he was very welcoming and I told hu, zip want to bring a group in. The food was very good and a great selection. I definely would go again.

We love the burgers and the home fries here. Nice little restaurant based off of old movie starts, all the burgers are named after the movie stars. They can make every one of them vegetarian if you prefer. Their home fries are to die for. We have had other dishes too like egg plant parmesan and their grilled pita sandwiches,... More

The owner takes great pride in his menu, which, in addition to a straightforward offering of pastas, pizzas, and chicken dishes, includes daily specials. What is so pleasing is the focus on quality and execution of the cooking and not a dauntingly large menu. The standard dishes are very reasonably priced, and so are a good value. The bread is...

This is a family owned and run restaurant. The owners have been on the premises both times we stopped in. They purchased the restaurant not too long ago (I don't know how long) from original owners who specialized in American type food, which is still the large part of the menu. I highly suggest trying their homemade Italian offerings instead.... More
