I visited family in the area and this is my mom's favorite place to eat. We had a couple of meals there and the service is exceptional. The food is tasty with large portions. I recommend if you are looking for American diner style food.

The food here is normally very good. Not a great place to go if you are on a diet, very few low calorie options on the menu.
